"A Simple Model-View-Controller Pattern"
Vol. 3, Issue 1, p. 36


Listing 1:
A simple Controller class with a main() method that creates application objects 
and “glues” them together with several anonymous inner class objects.
import java.awt.*; 
import java.awt.event.*; 
public class Controller { 
 private static ImageFilter m_filter; 
 private static Image m_image; 
 private static Frame m_ui; 

 public static void main( 
   String[] args) { 
  // Create main frame window, hook up 
  // listener for WINDOW_CLOSING events 
  m_ui = new Frame("IComp Application"); 
  WindowListener wl = new WindowAdapter() { 
   public void windowClosing(WindowEvent we) { 

  // Add "Apply Filter" button to UI, and 
  // add listener. 
  Button buttonApplyFilter = 
    new Button("Applet Filter"); 
  ActionListener al = new ActionListener { 
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) { 

  // ...Build interface of UI objects, and 
  // anonymous inner class listeners to react to 
  // user events... 

  // Finally, show the interface.
