New Listener Dialog

File | New | Listener

Specify the settings for the new listener.

Item Description
Name The listener name. Used only to generate the default listener class name.
Package The name of the package in which the new listener class should be created.

Click /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png. Then select an existing package or click /help/img/idea/2017.2/icon_newFolder.png to create a new package.

Class The fully qualified name of the listener class.

The default class name is generated using the package name, the class name prefix, the listener name, and the class name suffix.

The class name prefix and suffix are set in the Settings dialog. (The Listener Class Prefix and Suffix fields on the Java EE Names tab of the Editor | Code Style | Java page.)

If you want to specify an existing class, click /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png and select the class in the dialog that opens.

Create Java EE 6 annotated class If the check box is not selected, a <listener-class> element for the listener class is added to web.xml.

If the check box is selected, the new listener class will be @WebListener-annotated and no changes will be made to web.xml.

If there is no web.xml in your project, the check box is selected by default, and you cannot deselect it.
