Actually I didn't, but I went back and added it to the openmap.components
and it magically worked (I say magically since I don't quite get how the app
keeps track and hooks to those things)

So my fire* method problem is solved! Thanks.

But my other JPopUpMenu problem I still don't quite understand. I am
overriding a method (getItemsForOMGraphicMenu) that takes a OMGraphic as a
param and then returns a List of JMenuItems, right?

So in my mouseClicked method am I suppose to call that with the graphic that
the click occurred on and then that method just does whatever it needs to
(i.e. gets the AppObject and creates the menu items I want) and returns it
and then I have to manually create a JPopUpMenu and add all the items
returned and then somehow display it near the mouse pointer?
