I am looking for a good online explanation of Events and Listeners. I understand the basic idea but I would like something that give a more detailed usage and capability of Events and Listeners.

Welcome to the Java Ranch, we hope you�ll enjoy visiting as a regular however,
your name is not in keeping with our naming policy here at the ranch. Please change your display name to an appropriate name as shown in the policy.
Thanks again and we hope to see you around the ranch!!

As for a good source on event and listeners check out the Java GUI tutorial. The AWT fundamentals short course also has a section on events.
