Unable to display the JTable

I have a JTable which has the constructor as
myModel tableMap = new myModel(rows, colHeads);
jtable = new JTable(tableMap);

The rows is a vector of vectors with data like
[[Tom, 2343453456, JAVA, 20],[RITA, 4323453456, JAVA, 21]]

colHeads is the column headings like
[Name, Telephone, SkillName, Duration]

I add this JTable to the scrollerPane and the scrollerPane to JPanel
and then add the JPanel to the mainPanel.
Problem is I'm not able to see the JTable.
I am not sure what may be the reason. Any help is appreciated.

Have you set the scrollable viewport size?

Try adding jtable.setPreferredScrollableViewportSize(new Dimension(100, 100)) to your code and see if it shows up.

Have you tried displaying the table using a DefaultTableModel? Just to try to determine if the issue is in your custom tableModel?

I agree. Here's the link:
