The setExpandsSelectedPaths(boolean) for class JTree has been added to the JDK 1.3. However, I would like to implement the behavior in 1.2.
Any pointers in that direction would be really appreciated.
Below is the description of this method as given in the

New JTree expandsSelectedPaths Property
When the selection is programatically changed in a JTree, the selected items are made visible (visible meaning all the parent items are expanded). For certain applications this behavior is not desirable,
eg say all nodes of a certain type should be selected regardless of their visibility. This behavior is implemented across JTree and BasicTreeUI, making it tricky to override this behavior. The public methods get/setExpandsSelectedPaths have been added to JTree. If set to false, when the selection changes the nodes are not made visible, the default is true.
