Drag and Drop

I'm trying to perform Drag and Drop operations from a JTree to a JList, but when I move something from the tree to the list, I receive the class and a memory address instead of the value(javax.swing.tree.DefaultTreeSelectionModel xxxxxxx [[null, Parent, Node]@xxx]). DnD from JList to JList or JTextArea to JTextArea works fine. Any suggestions?

When you drop the item from your tree, make sure you are dropping the data into a DefaultListModel, otherwise it will print the jargon you were speaking of.

Here's what I've got. The reference to the object is of type Object and I try to get the String interpretation of it.
public void addElement(Object s)
I agree. Here's the link:
