    This is a Swing issue, not an IDE issue. I moved your thread to the appropriate forum.
    I would recommend reading the following:
    How to Use Tables (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)
    And highly recommend, at least when learning, to not rely on an IDE to develop your GUI - it could cause a lot more issues down the line than you may think.

    Well, this statement is only applicable for some years ago. However today the GUI designer is very powerful and flexible, WindowBuilder for Eclipse is an example.

    Sure, I will give you that, but it has nothing to do with how powerful and flexible it is. It has to do with using the builder without knowing what is underneath the hood...I base this on years of experience - I have seen way more than my fair share of people trying to debug something, customize something, adapt something, re-use something, and/or share something they built with a GUI builder but their project stalls because they have no clue what the builder built (JTable is a good example, as a builder could potentially lock one into a data model that - when that model changes can have huge ramifications for refactoring). I am not denying a GUI builder can be useful, I am saying that one should have a concept of the components and code it builds, as having no knowledge of the underlying code it builds can end up wasting more time in the long run. Your mileage may vary of course.

    Hi copeg,

    I agree with you on the point that one should understand the UI code while he is using a GUI builder. I mean a builder is very useful if you also have a good coding experience in GUI stuffs.
