JTree nodes and AbstractActions

anyone know how to get TreeNodes to react like JButtons or JMenuItems on an associated Action (taking te name, icon, shortcut, etc) ? I've traid subclassing it but TreeNode doesn't seem to have any of the normal swing component methods (setText, setEnabled, ...)

Anyone knows what i'm doing wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated?

thx in advance,
