    Default How can I get ListSelectionEvent to only return once?

    Each time a ListSelectionEvent occurs, it counts both the down click of the mouse button and it's release. So I get output that looks like this...

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to handle which item on my list I press and returning something I can use to handle different cases according to which item on the list is pressed?

    Java Code:
    I am trying to create a psuedo-grocery cart app for a class but can't get the event handling right. Here's the main class/frame/handler

    Java Code:
    package Apps;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
    import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
    import java.awt.event.FocusListener;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import javax.swing.event.ListSelectionEvent;
    import javax.swing.event.ListSelectionListener;
    public class CartScreen extends JFrame implements ActionListener, ListSelectionListener{  // I am a customized screen
    	private static final int FRAME_WIDTH	= 300;
    	private static final int FRAME_HEIGHT	= 500;
    	private static final int FRAME_X_ORIGIN	= 150;
    	private static final int FRAME_Y_ORIGIN	= 250;
    	private static final int BUTTON_WIDTH	= 80;
    	private static final int BUTTON_HEIGHT	= 30;
    	public static JList list;
    	public static JPanel listPanel;
    	public static JButton purchaseButton;
    	public static JButton cartButton;
    	JButton okButton;
    	String[] listOptions = {"Fruit","Shoe", "Pharmacy", "TVS"};
    	public CartScreen()
    		setSize(FRAME_WIDTH,FRAME_HEIGHT); 	 // window size
    		setTitle(" Shopping Cart ");
    		setLocation(FRAME_X_ORIGIN, FRAME_Y_ORIGIN);
    		Container content = getContentPane();   // get my canvas
    		list = new JList(listOptions);
    		listPanel = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
    		listPanel.add(new JScrollPane(list));
    		content.add(listPanel, BorderLayout.CENTER);
    		content.setBackground(Color.LIGHT_GRAY); //set background whatevs
    		content.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
    	public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) {
    		System.out.println("action event");
    	public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
