JTable row selection

I am trying to give the user the option of selecting a specific row and having the mouseclick return an int value for the row each time they click. It seems from reading the API and other examples that this is something that should be easy to implement but in all honesty I have not been able to do it. I would post my code but I have tried several different things. If someone has done this could you please show me how?

Only problem is, it seems to be executing the else twice for each click. I thought it might be my mouse but I've change the properties and it still calls the else twice. ANy ideas on why?

I'm not sure what you're doing but it's not all that difficult.

Maybe you are getting mouse Up and mouse Down events of some sort.

Here is a quick and dirty example:

I agree. Here's the link:
