thanks objects for that site.that is exactly what i need.but when i when though the code,it is typed into the node like that

Person a1 = new Person("Jack (great-granddaddy)");

in my case it is like this

ResultSet tables = state.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM CITY");
        String tableName;                          
        DefaultMutableTreeNode tableNode,tableNode1,tableNode2;           // Stores a tree node for a table
        while(tables.next())                              // For each table
          tableName = tables.getString("CITY_ENG_NAME");    // get the table name
          int cityID = tables.getInt("CITY_ID");
          tableNode = new DefaultMutableTreeNode(tableName);

well you can either set the text your require to be display in your tree node
or, create a new class that stores all the required details for the node, and use a custom cell renderer to format it as required
