Description
Multiple swing components (list, table, tree) get a TransferHandler installed by default. However, these TransferHandlers don't support drop. As such, we shouldn't install drop targets on them, to consume DnD events that could go other places.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

I agree. After installing these TransferHandlers, the drop target will be removed.
