JTable and JCheckboxes

I'd like to have a row full of JCheckboxes and to be able to treat them just like a ButtonGroup with JRadioButton...
I�ve tried to inherit a DefaultCellEditor, store all the checkboxes in a List, and later manipulate those checkboxes. I got completely surprised though, when I noticed my operations over the checkboxes are not reflected on the table. Even if I call setSelected(true), the state of the checkbox is selected, but on the table it still remains unchecked.

Any idea why?
Thanks in advance

tried a revalidate()?

When the compiler isn't happy, nobody is happy...
I agree. Here's the link:
