Java 5 Event handling

Event-handling is critical to any GUI application, and many developers know the hazards of making a method call to unknown or poorly behaved code from the event-dispatch thread. J2SE 5.0's concurrency utilities offer more fine-grained control over how code executes. Andrew Thompson applies that to offer better ways to handle events.
rating comment: Unfortunately this article is all about a framework the author developed and how to apply it. Despite promotion for the framework, the first couple of pharagraphs contain useful information about J2SE 5.0's concurrency utilities.
