Sorting JTable Rows

I want to sort my JTable rows in ascending order based on clicking on a particular column header. Is there a simple method to call to do this, or do I need to write my own sort routine? Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

The demo samples shipped with JDK 1.4 contains table sorting examples and classes required for that. It is fairly straighforward to use them in your code. Have a look at them.
