event handling

Event handling is the receipt of an event at some event handler from an event producer and subsequent processes. The processes involved in event handling include:
  • Identifying where an event should be forwarded.
  • Making the forward.
  • Receiving the forwarded event.
  • Taking some kind of appropriate action in response, such as writing to a log, sending an error or recovery routine or sending a message.
  • The event handler may ultimately forward the event to an event consumer.
