I'm just starting to program with Swing so I'm trying to run some
of the examples in the Swing Ref book.

I compiled the code for the TreeExample without any problems, but
when I tried to run it I got the messsage:

H:UofACmput301TreeFrame>java TreeFrame
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException
at TreeFrame.<init>(
at TreeFrame.main(

where the lines causing the problem are:

22: TreeFrame treeFrame1 = new TreeFrame();
10: JTree jTree1 = new JTree(new UIDefaultsTreeModel());

It's just the code that I downloaded from this site.
I'm sure the answer is simple but I don't have the experience to see it.
If you see the problem please let me know.

I have Java 2 running on NT4 with SP5 if that helps.

Thank you,
Jon Johansson.
