I think you will have to create a JPopupmenu and populate it with JMenuitem(s).

I don't think menuItem supports Icons

You can try JDIC library. They provide a similar interface wich support API with SystemTray and TryIcon wich allow JPopupMenu and you can use icons in JMenuItem. I checked in Windows Vista and is working. It seems to work on other platforms too. See: https://jdic.dev.java.net/
