Problem with a JTable

Hello !
When I select a cell for coloring it, I use the methods addColumnSelectionInterval and addRowSelectionInterval for selecting it. (because I don't know how doing that otherwise)
But there is a problem. For exemple, when I select the cell at the column 2 and at the row 3 and the cell at the column 3 and at the row 2, the cell at the row 2 and at the column 2 is selected( the cell 3,3 too)
How can I prevent that ?
(sorry for my bad english)

It's been a while since you posted, but for posterity's sake..
You might try using setColumnSelectionInterval() instead of
addColumnSelectionInterval(), and the same for the row.

I am having the same problem. It appears to be a problem with JTable and the selection model it implements.
In your example the JTable sees rows 2 and 3 and columns 2 and 3 as being selected.
Assuming you have cell selection enabled on the table then JTable sees the intersection of the selected rows and columns as being selected and so cells (2,2), (2,3), (3,2) and (3,3) are displayed as selected. If you try to select cell (2,4) then you should see that the selected cells now appear as (2,2), (2,3) and (2,4) as you are effectively selecting column 4 and deselecting row 3.
I don't know the solution to this one yet, other that overriding the selection yourself but I am continuing to look into it.
