Hello java developers,


I am primarily a java developer but I've recently done some C# work and one thing that i really liked was how C# makes event driven programming so easy. So, when I came back to Java, it was a feature that i really missed. Of course, event driven programming is not impossible to do in Java, but it requires you to write addListener, removeListener, keep a list of observers etc in each class. You an also make your of Observable interface but it just does not offers the same flexibility as C# events.


I've searched for good libraries that offers similar functionality, but most of then were mainly annotation driven or hard to use or too complicated. So decided to write a framework myself. After spending some considerable amount of time researching and trying out different methods, I've finished a java library that tries to mimic C# events while keeping the code very minimal. And I though I might make the library available to anyone interested in this small project or those who have been looking for a good event driven framework.


The project is called "JEvents" (yeah,i know, a lame name) and is available here -> http://chanthus.github.io/JEvents/


Hope you find it useful. Feel free to point out any mistakes or give any suggestions.
