I would like to get JTable Column Header Icon it would be nice if you could tell me a way to get it.
I have a table where I can able to see Up Arrow and Down arrow for ascending and descending order respectively to arrange the value in the table, now I am looking for a way to get the Up arrow and down arrow icons from the Column header.
Thanks in advance.

Look at the examples at
Swing Examples
You will get some help. Basically you will have to place JButtons as column header and set icons for JButton. Then implement mouse click event.
I haven't done this myself, so cannot provide any code snippet as such.
I agree. Here's the link:
