Event Handling with the Swing Component Set

  • John Zukowski


in chapter 1, you were provided with a brief overview of everything that’s covered in this book. In this chapter, we start to look at the details of one specific part of that “everything”: event handling. When working with the Swing component set, you have the option of continuing to use the delegation-based event-handling mechanism introduced with JDK 1.1 and JavaBeans. In addition, the Swing component set offers several additional ways to respond to userinitiated actions (as well as to programmatic events). In this chapter, we’ll explore all these event-handling response mechanisms.
