embedding objects in JTables

Does anyone know if there is anyway to create a JTable whose cells are all JTextAreas? Is this humanly possible? Does it have to do something with the TableModel or cell renderer, neither or both? I know it supports a couple of objects by default (Integer, Boolean). Any help would be appreciated.

U will have to implement ur own table renderer which returns the JTextArea as the renderer for the particular cell in ur table.
I agree. Here's the link:
