The only start-to-finish guide to Java event handling!-- Breakthrough techniques for effective Java-based GUI development.-- From beginning event programming through advanced techniques.-- Includes a complete technical reference to Java events.Efficient event handling is key to creating powerful, GUI-based Java software. Java Event Handling is the first Java book to focus entirely on event handling, from the absolute basics to state-of-the-art techniques. Expert Java developer Grant Palmer presents an in-depth introduction to the Java event model, showing how Java event handling has evolved to deliver greater power and control, and providing easy-to-adapt code examples that show how to make the most of it. Palmer begins by clearly explaining Java events and the Java event lifecycle. He introduces both local and distributed events, presenting differences, similarities, and practical techniques for implementing each. The book introduces event classes and event listener interfaces, as well as more advanced techniques, such as event listener manager classes and user-defined event classes. Part II presents a comprehensive technical reference to all Java events: event classes, listener interfaces, support classes, lifecycle methods, and more. For Java programmers at all levels of expertise.
