    In what context? Is this a Swing GUI program? SWT? Console? What do you have so far?

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.

    If you're using Swing note that a JMenu is a JMenuItem (it extends that class) so it can be used as such.

    kind regards,

    I don't understand your question; all I can say is use a JMenu as if it were a JMenuItem and voila, you have your nested menu.

    kind regards,

    Have you read the API and followed the link to the Swing tutorial on "How to Use Menus" which contains a working example with sub menus?
