Handling Events in Custom Widgets

I have this doubt which I hope to get clarified.

Prior to GWT 1.6, in a custom widget with overridden 'onBrowserEvent', native events (such as ClickEvent) could be fired to associated listeners using 'fireClick' of [b]ClickListenerCollection
With ClickListenerCollection/ClickListener APIs deprecated since, is it possible to fire the events using a List of ClickHandlers now instead ?

Or is it mandatory that they be registered and then the 'onBrowserEvent' superclass method be called ?
(Reference : Header 'New EventHandler System' and 'Widget Developers' in )

I agree. Here's the link:
