I'm trying to get something done within a AWTEvent (actionPerformed). In my environment I can't use swing so I have to solve this problem in AWT (jdk-1_1_8_006). This something is running a new frame (screen) with a lots of new AWTEvents and also a database interaction. I seem to have problems with painting the new screen within the first AWTEvent. I belief it has something to do with the event-dispatching thread, but I could belief my that bij second screen couldn't be painted even when I had started a new JVM to handle this screen (Runtime.exec("java newScreen")).
How can I bypass this event-dispatching thread when I'm already in it.
