Packages that use AWTEvent
java.awt Contains all of the classes for creating user interfaces and for painting graphics and images. 
java.awt.event Provides interfaces and classes for dealing with different types of events fired by AWT components. 
java.awt.im Provides classes and interfaces for the input method framework. 
java.awt.im.spi Provides interfaces that enable the development of input methods that can be used with any Java runtime environment. 
javax.swing.event Provides for events fired by Swing components. 
 

Uses of AWTEvent in java.awt
 

Methods in java.awt that return AWTEvent
