Why is it that all of the SWING tutorials that Sun provides, even http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/new2java/divelog/, do not use good Action and/or Command patterns for handling events?
I am in the process of trying to learn some of these patterns and finding examples in SWING tutorials is like, well, finding a needle in a hay stack, and I have yet to find the needle.
Anyone know the reason Sun chose not to use good patterns in their tutorials for GUI Application Event Handling?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
