I have an applet that has a panel that is made up a JList. This list is all populated with a data vector. Now, I would like to be able to edit the elements directly inside the JList. So maybe if I double clicked on an element in the list than a cursor would appear and then I could up date that particular list. Thus containing all editing of the JList within itself. I know I could use a combination of components to to so but what I invision is a PopUp menu that comes up on the JList that enable me to ADD,UPDATE,DELETE from the already populated JList for proper saving later on to a database.
