JTree - editable & moveable


How can I make it so that the nodes wthin my JTree can be edited?
I wish for the user to be able to double-click on a node, and then type in a new value; and then when they hit return (or whatever), a method of mine is called - which will rename a file based on the new value.

I've got as far as #setEditable( true ). But now what?


How can I allow nodes to be dragged into other nodes (but only nodes which have sub-nodes).
This is to, in effect, drag files from one folder to another.

(1) Any examples?

(2) My JTree component is already a drag source; do I merely need to make it a drop source as well, and then go from there?
