Accelerator keys for Pop Up menu-items

Is there any way to set accelerator keys to pop up menu items.
I have a pop up menu on JTable and I want to set accelerator keys to its menu items. I also want to display the accelerator keys on the menu item's label, exactly the same way as they are displayed in case of menu-bar.
(see the File menu(items) above on your browser).

What you add to the JMenu and the JPopupMenu are the same object; JMenuItem so you can set the accelerator.
Check out the JMenuItem API for method to set accelerator.

This works fine for me. Post your SSCCE that demonstrates the problem

You can try using Key Bindings. I would guess that yo would need to bind the Action to the root pane.
