I am new to java working on JtableTree downloaded from I want to select / display the complete path (for example:"home/user/Jtree/tree.xml") when selecting a leaf node of JTreeTable. In source code of JTreeTable, in JTreeTable class they have implemented
ListSelectionListener for both table and tree. I have modified the code implemented both ListSelectionSelectionListenor and TreeSelectionListenor implemented the method for TreeSelectionevent like this:

( code snippet from class after modificaion )

class ListSelectionHandler implements ListSelectionListener, TreeSelectionListener{
public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
System.out.println("List selection changed listener");


public void valueChanged(TreeSelectionEvent e) {
DefaultMutableTreeNode node = (DefaultMutableTreeNode) e
if(node.isLeaf()) {
System.out.println("You selected " + node);

But when we select a node(non leaf/ or leaf node) TreeSelectionEvent never get control.

Is there any other way to select/ get the complete path of selected non leaf node ?

I have also tried to add mouse listener to tree and get selected path on double click of non leaf node. How we can add the mouse listener to JtableTree to get the selected node path ?
I agree. Here's the link:
