Have radio buttons A and B.   Any change should tickle two listeners.  One for button going active; one
for button going inactive.  Is there any order to this?   Can I be sure on A->B that either one will wake up first?

awt tyro.  Thanks in advance

I do not think that the listener definition guarantees you the order. You can look at the implementation of addItemListener() and processItemEvent() methods to see what happens to the listeners and in which order they are called. Or you can override those methods to insure that they are called in the order desired.
