Iam involved in a work of creating wrapper classes for my
import mywork.awt.*;
import mywork.awt.event.*;
( i use java.awt.*;java.awt.event.* inside my package)
I use the same names as the originals namely
This is my sample file. I explain the problem after this::
import mywork.awt.*;
import mywork.awt.event.*;
public class ButtonSample extends Frame implements ActionListener
public ButtonSample()
setTitle("Button Sample");
Button print = new Button("Print Hello");
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae)
String button = ae.getActionCommand();
if (button.equals("Print Hello"))
System.out.println("Hello Printed");
public static void main(String []args)
new ButtonSample();
Actually, the program should run as i extended or implemented
the originals in my package.(mywork).
But i get a serious problem when i run this: As,
"" class ButtonSample must be declared abstract. It does not define void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent) from interface java.awt.event.ActionListener.
public class ButtonSample extends Frame implements ActionListener ""
Is there any solutuions to override these???

So since the compiler wants you to implement an actionPerformed() method with the original ActionEvent as an argument, you'll have to write it as
