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.
