JTable cell focus

I am tabbing through the editable cells in a customized JTable. I am using a custom editor and renderer as well. The tabbing part is fine. When the tab gives the cell focus, the editor comes up, but the cell doesn't "look" selected. Likewise, when the tab takes focus to the next editable cell, the previous editor remains, as opposed to the renderer. Should I be firing an event when the cell gains and looses focus? Any other suggestions on what might be happening?
