  29  * An abstract adapter class for receiving drop target events. The methods in
  30  * this class are empty. This class exists only as a convenience for creating
  31  * listener objects.
  32  * <p>
  33  * Extend this class to create a {@code DropTargetEvent} listener
  34  * and override the methods for the events of interest. (If you implement the
  35  * {@code DropTargetListener} interface, you have to define all of
  36  * the methods in it. This abstract class defines a null implementation for
  37  * every method except {@code drop(DropTargetDropEvent)}, so you only have
  38  * to define methods for events you care about.) You must provide an
  39  * implementation for at least {@code drop(DropTargetDropEvent)}. This
  40  * method cannot have a null implementation because its specification requires
  41  * that you either accept or reject the drop, and, if accepted, indicate
  42  * whether the drop was successful.
  43  * <p>
  44  * Create a listener object using the extended class and then register it with
  45  * a {@code DropTarget}. When the drag enters, moves over, or exits
  46  * the operable part of the drop site for that {@code DropTarget}, when
  47  * the drop action changes, and when the drop occurs, the relevant method in
  48  * the listener object is invoked, and the {@code DropTargetEvent} is
  49  * passed to it.
  50  * <p>
  51  * The operable part of the drop site for the {@code DropTarget} is
  52  * the part of the associated {@code Component}'s geometry that is not
  53  * obscured by an overlapping top-level window or by another
  54  * {@code Component} higher in the Z-order that has an associated active
  55  * {@code DropTarget}.
  56  * <p>
  57  * During the drag, the data associated with the current drag operation can be
  58  * retrieved by calling {@code getTransferable()} on
  59  * {@code DropTargetDragEvent} instances passed to the listener's
  60  * methods.
  61  * <p>
  62  * Note that {@code getTransferable()} on the
  63  * {@code DropTargetDragEvent} instance should only be called within the
  64  * respective listener's method and all the necessary data should be retrieved
  65  * from the returned {@code Transferable} before that method returns.
  66  *
