I'm using subclasses of AbstractAction for my buttons and menuItems, and I was thinking about switching to the Command Pattern. However, the more I think about it, the more I wonder if I already have the Command pattern using my approach. Essentially, AbstractAction serves the purpose of Command, and ActionPerformed served the purpose of execute(). Does this seems right?
