ScrollPane oversized for JTable

Hi GUys :

I have a scroll pane, holding a jtable, but the problem
is that it always has extra space added to the bottom of it.
So there is a blank grey area under the table (whose background is white). Ive tried setting the background color of the
scroll pane to pink (so that I can verify this) and the empty space
is still grey. But Im pretty sure that the grey space is the scroll pane because at the bottom of it is the scroll bar.

This seems strange .... I would think a scroll pane should be smart enought
to pack its size down just small enought to frame the size of the JTable so no extra space is taken up.

So my question is... how do you pack the contents of a scroll pane ?

Please help ?
