I just did this (I think my method is kind of a hack, but it works).
I created another column in the table that holds the celleditor (drop down box or JText field) and I overrode the getCellEditor method to return the one that is in the adjacent column. Of course you want to remove this column from the table before displaying it.

If you know before hand what cells require what types of editor, you could also just do a switch/if statement to return the right editor.
