An implementation of a popup menu -- a small window that pops up and displays a series of choices. A JPopupMenu is used for the menu that appears when the user selects an item on the menu bar. It is also used for "pull-right" menu that appears when the selects a menu item that activates it. Finally, a JPopupMenu can also be used anywhere else you want a menu to appear. For example, when the user right-clicks in a specified area.
