how to rename a node in JTree when user clicks on the pop-up menu associated with the tree

 I need to rename a node in a JTree. I can do it by setting JTree's setEditable to be true, but  that is not what i want.
  What i really want is that the users can right click on the pop-up menu "Rename" and then change the node name, just exactly like what the the window explorer does.
  Please help me.

This is the exact behaviuor as in WindowsExplorer. The tree must be made editable, even if you want to programically edit an node. All you have to do is to right click a node and push the "Rename" popup item. If you want that a node to be selected only at a left mouse click, please comment the line : tree.setSelectionPath(tree.getClosestPathForLocation(x1, y1)); from the method TreeMouseAdapter.rightPressed(int, int) (in this moment if you do a right or left click the node becomes selected anyway - WindowsExplorer style).
