Generating KeyEvents

Question:
How can I generate a Key Event from Java? I need to generate a KEY_TYPED Event, so the focused Component accepts it like normal key action.

Answer:
All you have to do is instantiate a KeyEvent with the values you desire, and call the focused Component's dispatchEvent() method. It really is that simple. You can artificially generate any AWTEvent you want from within a program and dispatch it to any Component by calling dispatchEvent().
