import javax.swing._
import java.awt.event.{ActionEvent, ActionListener}

  def main(args: Array[String]) {
    val button = new JButton("Click Me")
    button.addActionListener((e:ActionEvent) => showButtonMessage(e.getActionCommand.toString))
    getContentPane add button

  implicit def actionPerformedWrapper(func: (ActionEvent) => Unit) = new ActionListener {
    def actionPerformed(e:ActionEvent) = func(e)
