Description Jachym_Vojtek 2015-07-23 08:39:19 UTC
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import javax.swing.JButton;

public class C {

    JButton btn;

    void init() {
        btn.addActionListener((ActionEvent e) -> {
            System.out.println("Btn clicked!");

Applying "Use anonymous inner class" converts code to:

    void init() {
        btn.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {

            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                System.out.println("Btn clicked!");

I would expect that the method 'actionPerformed' should be annotated with @Override annotation, other IDEs add this annotation.
