JPopupMenu inside a Jtree

I was trying to put a popupMenu into a JTree, and I thought I had followed what most examples show, but my popupMenu never appears when I right click on the JTree. Also the isPopupTrigger is never true even when I use the other method (e.isPopupTrigger()). I have tried to add the popupMenu to the JTree as I have sometimes seen in examples but that did nothing. I also put the JTree into a scrollPane later on, would that affect anything? The pertinent code is below. Thanks for any help.

I actually found how to fix this. My main program had originally extended Applet, I decided to change to JApplet since most of my stuff was swing, and my popup just suddenly started working. I wonder why the Applet was letting me use swing components in the first place, most of the swing components worked, except for the popupMenu. Anyone know why this behavior exists?
