I need some sample code for adding and removing nodes from a JTree, e.g. adding a child node of a child node, deleting a parent node. Does anyone have such code ?

Here u have some Swing code examples:

http://www2.gol.com/users/tame/swing/examples/SwingExamples.html

In this page, u could find many code examples with Jtree.

Bye... :)

You basically need to change the model behind the GUI.
Say your model is based off of a DefaultMutableTreeNode:
You can use:
insert(MutableTreeNode node, int index);
remove(MutableTreeNode node);

After you change the model you have to update the View (JTree uses MVC (like the rest of Swing))
call revalidate() on the JTree.

stalefish and dmaquillo give good links for examples.

This is one example which I think should help you out . This is one of the standard examples given in one of the tutorials.
