AbstractAction = Command Pattern?

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?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
