Editable JTree????

This is driving me crazy.
I have extended JTree to add Drag Drop Functionality, which is working perfectly. I am using my own TreeModel which is extending DEfaultTreeModel and TreeNode extending DefaultMutableTreeNode.
My problem is that even though I am able to get a textfield as my node editor but any changes to the text are lost once I hit enter, tree nodes display the initial values.
I might be overlooking some basic things, could any body points me how to get a editable tree.
Regards,
Vijay

I dont think you edit the node as much as you replace it. The treeModel contains the data, so editing the node will make no difference unless you replace the one the TreeModel will be showing, or edit the one the TreeModel will show.
Is your treeModel aware of the new edited node?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
