JTree ToolTip

What's the best way to go about creating a ToolTip for a tree node in a JTree? I want to be able to show a JPanel with multiple lines of information. Is this possible, or would I have to use a multi-line String?

You can set tooltip & make it wrap round so that it comes in next line, it looks as if its in a pane.
