Package net.sf.mmm.util.event.api Description

Provides the API for a generic event-handling.

Event-Util API

It is a common pattern to register a listener for events that notify of a specific situation. This pattern has been re-implemented thousands of times. Java generics allow to stop to re-invent the wheel and implement the pattern once in a generic way. This prevents you from typical mistakes as dead-locks in listeners that want to de-register themselves during event-handling.
Create your custom event by implementing the marker interface Event or if suitable implementing ChangeEvent. Then the producer of the events only needs to extend AbstractEventSource or one of its sub-classes.
