If you really mean to handle the events using Component.handleEvent you just need to subclass the java.awt.Event class. Then call postEvent( event ) for the target component. This only applies to JDK 1.0.2, however.

If you want to use JDK 1.1+ then you need to subclass java.awt.AWTEvent and call Toolkit.getEventQueue().postEvent(event)

I don't know if you did understood my question...
What I want to do is, to start an application and send an event which I can receive by another application.

Do you mean in two separate JVM's? That would mean some sort of IPC (inter-process communication). The best thing to do would be to open a socket between the two processes and pass your events as serialized objects.

And how can I do that?
I have found the following, but I want to communicate between two Processes on the same machine:
Socket connection = new Socket(hostname, portnum)

hostname is "localhost" for the local machine. Always. You decide on a port number you would like to use. Any port number over 1000 is okay. Many people try ports in the 10000 - 11000 range.

So the call would be:

Socket connection = new Socket( "localhost", 10100 );

The server and client use the same port number.

OK?
