Pulldown Button Menu in JToolBar?

I want to create a menu in a JToolBar just like IE's Back/Forward buttons on its toolbar. I have looked everywhere to try and find some code that might enlighten me on how to do this. Does anyone out there have suggestions on how to proceed?

U can do this on the toolbar button, but this button will be a custom button which opens a popupmenu when the button is clicked. Then u can add whatever u want in the popumenu & act accordingly.
Sample code:
class PopButton extends JButton

//when button is selected or clicked in listener

//the method which pops a popupmenu
PopupMenu pop = new PopupMenu();
pop.add(xyz);//add whatever u want;
This should work.
