  29  * An abstract adapter class for receiving container events.
  30  * The methods in this class are empty. This class exists as
  31  * convenience for creating listener objects.
  32  * <P>
  33  * Extend this class to create a {@code ContainerEvent} listener
  34  * and override the methods for the events of interest. (If you implement the
  35  * {@code ContainerListener} interface, you have to define all of
  36  * the methods in it. This abstract class defines null methods for them
  37  * all, so you can only have to define methods for events you care about.)
  38  * <P>
  39  * Create a listener object using the extended class and then register it with
  40  * a component using the component's {@code addContainerListener}
  41  * method. When the container's contents change because a component has
  42  * been added or removed, the relevant method in the listener object is invoked,
  43  * and the {@code ContainerEvent} is passed to it.
