JTable - selection of a right-click

I want to be able to select a JTable row on a mouse right-click, just as it happens on a mouse left-click, for opening a popup menu. Opening the menu itself is no problem. The problem is that the row is not selected.
How can I do that?

Hi Amit,
try this code and i think this might help you,
table1.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter()
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent me)
if(SwingUtilities.isRightMouseButton(me) == true)
int row = table1.rowAtPoint(me.getPoint());

//your popup menu goes here.
try and let me know,
I agree. Here's the link:
