    It appears that default registerEvent method is deprecated now.

    I have seen on javadocs that new non-deprecated method needs something called Event Executor.

    Is there any documentation about that?

    Since when? Is this in one of the new dev builds?

    Ah, well for now registerevent should still work even if it is deprecated, might as well still use it until the javadocs are updated.

    Yep, the whole Bukkit event system just changed. I'm assuming Dinnerbone will make a post soon, but now it looks something like this (afaik, might have errors)
    Code:java
    1.  
    2. public class MyListener implements Listener {
    3. @EventHandler(PlayerChatEvent.class, EventPriority.Normal)
    4. public void onPlayerChat(PlayerChatEvent event) {
    5. // Do Stuff
    6. }
    7. }
    8.  

    Then to register, its something like
    Code:java
    1.  
    2. getServer().getPluginManager().registerEvents(this, new MyListener());
    3.  

    And you can probably also register them one at a time, but I haven't looked at it yet

    Sounds like more trouble than it's worth.

    So old system was slow?

    You're probably right, I was just referring to trouble of memorizing the new method (and expelling the old).

    Very. You've got NO idea how slow it was :confused:

    Slow as in slow to start up the server, or slow as in slow to type.

    afaik slow as in handling the events, not at startup, not as in typing.
    Example: Block gets broken. Before this, it took 0.001 second to process. After this, it takes 0.0001 second to process :)

    Looks like this:

    @EventHandler(event = PlayerChatEvent.class, priority = EventPriority.NORMAL)

    Thats correct. Works fine on my test server.

    Does it have to implement Listener? Or can it, for example, extend PlayerListener.

    PlayerListener and all the other listener classes are marked as deprecated, but i guess extending some of the old classes will still work. Its just important to add the new annotations to your methods.

    In general its better to implement the new Listener interface instead of extending one of the old classes.

    Should I still keep my EntityListener and PlayerListener in their own classes?

    Thats up to you. As long as it implements Listener, you could have every method in its own class (Not that you already couldn't). Also, remember that means you can have your own method names!

    What I meant by that, is that using the new interface could I put the EntityListener and the PlayerListener in the same class?

    "public class PlayerListener implements Listener {
    @EventHandler(PlayerChatEvent.class, EventPriority.Normal)"

    I get error in PlayerChatEevent.class. I put JogadorListener.class, it doesn't work too.

    @Edit:

    SHIT!!!! It doesn't call the plugin. my 'static ShuraCore plugin' isn't working.
