JTable Cell Editor

Hi All,
I have a JTable where user can enter their address information. Table has street, zip, city, county and state as Columns. (I save these info to AddressTable)
Once user enters the zipcode I have to populate the city , state and county information from the database. (from ZipcodeTable)
So far I have a ZipEditor for the zip column, which validates if the user is entering correct zipcode.
My problem is once the zip editor is done the validation, how should I get the city, state and county from ZipCodeTable and display it on the JTable.
Right now once the validation is done, the cursor moves to the city column. Where should I capture the action that zip column is ready and refresh the current table with new city state and county info.
(I hope I explained it well)

I am guessing you have an action attached to validate the zip code? Why don't you add to that action?

If zipcode is valid, then pull stuff out of database and put into approriate fields.
I may be misunderstanding what you are trying to ask...

I agree. Here's the link:
