The pen events are similar to the mouse events. Only mouse events are fired as you touch the screen with the mouse.
Also, depending on the control it is invoking the appropriate event will be fired. If you are clicking a button, ActionEvent would be fired, if you are clicking on a combo box, appropriate event would be generated.
Pen to a Tablet PC as Mouse to the Desktop. So event handling mechanism are one and the same.
