Event Driven java and more - server, client, and Android

I have recently been taking an interest in <a href="http://vertx.io/">Vert.x</a> which allows you to write TCP Servers, HTTP Servers, SockJS Servers, etc ( it also allows you to write clients ). One thing to note is that it is built on top of Java 7 so it cannot be included in Android projects. So I started looking for a event based system for Android projects. ( I am a bit obsessed with the whole Event-Driven logic, if you couldn't already tell ).

After searching for a bit I found .... <a href="http://square.github.com/otto/">Otto</a>

I haven't had much time to play with the library but <a href="http://jakewharton.com/">Jake Wharton</a> makes really interesting stuff. Maybe someone can take a look at <a href="http://square.github.com/otto/">Otto</a> and let me know if it is as cool as it sounds.

Just a side note about Vert.x you can write code in Ruby (JRuby), Python (Jython), Javascript (Rhino). Or if you want you could write some in each language and watch them all play nice with each other :)
