Swing- How do i refresh a JTree? tried using repaint, reload and revalidate methods...

I am working on an swing application that uses JTree component. i am using HashTable to add the elements to the JTree. The data that is to be displayed will be changing when the user clicks on NExt button. To enable this i am clearing the data in hashtable and adding the new data and readding the component to the JTree. the new data is visible only when i minimize the screen and re maximise. can any one suggest me what i should be doing. i can send the code if required.

DefaultTreeModel model=(DefaultTreeModel)tree.getTableModel();
model.reload(node)

I.E.

You must reload the corresponding node where the items are added or removed! You can reload the root node if the Tree is not very big!

Since you say that it will refresh when you minimise or maximise, I assume that the logic of loading data into JTree is correct and the following is my suggestion.

Add a refresh button and then performed the refresh of JTree by this button.

the code to refresh Jtree may be like this:
MyJTree.revalidate();

If it didn't work properly, try this
MyJTree.setVisible(false);
MyJTree.revalidate();
MyJTree.setVisible(true);

Hope this will help.

Thanks for the support. I have tried revalidate, repaint, and reload methods as well. this time i tried to setVisibility to false and then to true. When i try to use
DefaultTreeModel model=(DefaultTreeModel)tree.getTableModel();
model.reload(node)
 it is giving me a compilation error stating that getTableModel() method not found.

Please suggest as the problem persists and is pressing...
Thanks and regards

Sorry about the error:

  DefaultTreeModel model=(DefaultTreeModel)tree.getModel();
  //model.reload()
  //or
  model.reload(node);
