Double Click a JList item

Hi folks,

I want to double click a JList item to open a new window. How should I do that?

Specifically, I have a JList which its data is from a collection of images (which contains info like image size, file name, etc.). I want to double click a list item, then a new window opens, so that I can display the full view of the image in the new window.

Which listener shall I use?

from the JList javadoc:

 JList doesn't provide any special support for handling double or triple (or N) mouse clicks however it's easy to handle them using a MouseListener. Use the JList method locationToIndex() to determine what cell was clicked. For example:

 final JList list = new JList(dataModel);
 MouseListener mouseListener = new MouseAdapter() {
     public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
         if (e.getClickCount() == 2) {
             int index = list.locationToIndex(e.getPoint());
             System.out.println("Double clicked on Item " + index);
