JTable is a very flexible class, but that flexibility makes it a bit hard to use. The easiest way to get column names is to use the JTable(Object[][] rowData, Object[] columnNames) constructor. There are many other ways. In some cases, you will create your own TableColumnModel and add each column manually.
I agree. Here's the link:
