Use JTree's method

public TreePath getPathForLocation(int x, int y)

Then TreePath

public Object getLastPathComponent()

That returns you desired node from point where user right clicked.

Seem to have caused a bit of confusion (confusing myself ;-) - so here's a code snippet for doing target location related configuration of the componentPopup

    JPopupMenu popup = new JPopupMenu();
    final Action action = new AbstractAction("empty") {

        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    JTree tree = new JTree() {

         * @inherited <p>
        public Point getPopupLocation(MouseEvent e) {
            if (e != null) {
               TreePath path = getClosestPathForLocation(e.getX(), e.getY());
               action.putValue(Action.NAME, String.valueOf(path.getLastPathComponent()));
               return e.getPoint();
            action.putValue(Action.NAME, "no mouse"); 
            return null;


I took @kleopatra solution and changed it slightly. Maybe it isn't the best way but works for me.

JTree tree = new JTree() {
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    @Override public Point getPopupLocation(MouseEvent e) {
        if (e == null) return new Point(0,0);
        TreePath path = getClosestPathForLocation(e.getX(), e.getY());
        Object selected = path != null ? path.getLastPathComponent() : null;
        setComponentPopupMenu(getMenuForTreeNode(getComponentPopupMenu(), selected));
        return e.getPoint();

public JPopupMenu getMenuForTreeNode(JPopupMenu menu, Object treeNode) {
    if (menu == null) menu = new JPopupMenu("Menu:");
    if (treeNode instanceof MyTreeItem) {
        menu.add(new JMenuItem("This is my tree item: " + treeNode.toString()));
    return menu;
