I think you need to do this in the renderer because the state
of the checkbox is not preserved.

Try extending the DefaultTableCellRenderer class and implement the getTableCellRendererComponent method and create your own renderer.

Does your table model return true in isCellEditable() for the cells in question?

If so, the next thing to check is that setValueAt() handles Boolean values correctly for those cells.
