This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I hope every concept in java has pros. Can anyone explain what are the real-time use of Anonymous class. Please do not write theatrical definition which are available in Java books.If explain with example is more appreciative
And lots of us add anonymous ActionListeners to our Buttons. They look rather similar to Rob's example, and most books have them in. In fact I think a book which doesn't teach how to write an anonymous ActionListener probably isn't worth reading!
Actually, I hardly use ActionListeners for any of my buttons. I prefer (Abstract)Action - you can use a single Action object to share the text, icon, mnemonic and accelerator for multiple buttons. That includes JMenuItem.
And since Action extends ActionListener you get the event handling as well

So you do use ActionListeners
I see your point, they do appear to be an improvement on ActionListener.
