This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Here is some code (modified for this example) that I wrote when I was first learning about extends keyword. And action listeners, and inner classes. It uses AWT only, but you should easily modify it to use Swing.
