Changing from Choice to JComboBox

Hallo,
I have a object for choice and i add the items to the choice object.

then i have a select method of choice to select the item in the choice box.

now i am changing to JComboBox instead of Choice

how can i select the item in the JComboBox.

here is a piece of my code:

public class choicedemo{
private Choice portChoice;
{


 portChoice = new Choice();
          portChoice.addItemListener(this);
          add(portChoice);
          listPortChoices();
          portChoice.select(parameters.getPortName());

}

now i have to change my choice object to JComboBox object

do i have any methods in JComboBox as
(JComboBoxobject).select();

how can i access the items in the JComboBox.


With regards

or
      setSelectedItem(Object anObject) // passing an objec
