I think the syntax "skips" colon in this case:

okButton.addActionListener(ActionEvent e)

This would also work:

// synchronizing properties of two beans...

Bean1 bean1 = ...;
Bean2 bean2 = ...;

bean1.addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeEvent e : "property1") {

bean2.addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeEvent e : "property2") {

But since these are registration only methods, execution of controlled blocks is defered to a later time, possibly from some other thread.
One should keep that in mind and not try to return from method in the controlled blocks - this would trigger exception.
