I am facing a difficult situation.
Suppose here is my class
class Test {
Test() {
JButton b = new JButton("Hi");
b.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
.....
}
});
JButton h = new JButton("Hello");
h.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
.....
}
});
}
public static void main(String args[]) {
Test t = new Test();
}
}
The above code creates a large no. of class files as separate
ActionListener are created.
class Test implements ActionListener {
JButton b = new JButton("Hi");
JButton h = new JButton("Hello");
Test() {
b.addActionListener(this);
h.addActionListener(this);
}
public static void main(String args[]) {
Test t = new Test();
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
if (ae.getSource() == b) {
...
}
else if (ae.getSource() == h) {
...
}
.....
}
}
The above code doesn't creates any extra class files.
Can anyone pls guide which approach is acceptable and is considered a
good.
Also the following thing is bugging me :-
should i use the following:-
Because we are supposed to use swing components, what kind of event
handling should be provided. The above is AWT event handling which is
at the core. I also heard that Action interfaces can be implemented.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Ideally use the second approach but with MVC - i.e., let the action events be generated at the View and be passed to the controller to perform further actions(methods)
