We can use both Robot class & Event Queue to trigger AWT events.
What is the difference between these two approach?
Which is the best one to use?
What is the ideal scenario to use these classes?

can only create events for the current Java application. The mouse and key events generated by Robot are sent through the operating system and can therefore send events to any application, as long as it's visible on the desktop.
