ActionEvent and JButton Question

I'm creating an interactive tic-tac-toe game using swing graphics, in which I have nine buttons for the nine squares. Is it possible to keep track of which button is pressed as an ActionEvent?
For example, I'm trying to do this: JButton buttonChosen = _____________ where the blank would be which button was clicked by the mouse.

I'd really appreciate any help, thank you!
