Transfer handling help

So I am trying to set up a way to drag items from a list onto a panel or frame... I am using Netbeans so the list has 5 items, and I have set drop to be enabled on it. I am trying to set up the TransferHandler and DropTarget... There is a lot of methods and I'm not really sure how to go about this. I'm reading the Oracle Trail and so far it seems like I need to set the source and stuff for the export(which is already set up it seems when I click "dropEnabled" in the gui), but now I need to setup the transfer to be imported....

So far I have this

But I'm not sure if I set that up right....

Let me know if this code is wrong and where I need to change it... I would appreciate any input, and I will be editing this as I try to do this myself...

Thanks ,
