/**
 * An event which executes the <code>run()</code> method on a <code>Runnable
 * </code> when dispatched by the AWT event dispatcher thread. This class can
 * be used as a reference implementation of <code>ActiveEvent</code> rather
 * than declaring a new class and defining <code>dispatch()</code>.<p>
 *
 * Instances of this class are placed on the <code>EventQueue</code> by calls
 * to <code>invokeLater</code> and <code>invokeAndWait</code>. Client code
 * can use this fact to write replacement functions for <code>invokeLater

 * in any <code>AWTEventListener</code> objects.
