I am trying to implement a right click feature on all items in a JTree. When right click on a leaf node, i will display a menu that include "delete" and "Open in new window". What type of listener i need to attach to JTree so it will response to the right click event?

you just add a MouseListener to your tree and catch the mouseClicked event. Then ask the MouseEvent with isPopUpTrigger() for a right click.
For adding the listener, you can use the MouseAdapter. This class already implemements the MouseListener Interface. You simply overwrite the mouseClicked method.
Hope, this helps
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
