Updating JTable data sources

This is my first post - if this question is better suited to the intermediate forum, I apologize and will take it there.
I'm having difficulty getting my table to refresh its data model and itself (appearance wise).
I'm using a DefaultTableModel which is constructed with 2 Vectors.
1 is the data Vector, the other for the column headings.
To begin, I start my application with an empty data Vector, so the
table is displayed as empty - fine no problems.
Next I have a button which adds an entry to the data Vector, and also
generates an event for the table.
To construct the event (TableModelEvent), I pass it my table model.
Then I have used both newRowsAdded() and newDataAvailable() to deliver
the event.
I do have a TableModelListener, and the gist of what is does is an
addRow() where I pass it the new row data.
Here's the problematic behaviour - When I use the GUI to update the
table, it enters the 1 row of data over and over again (maybe 32k times).
I would appreciate any insights, or feedback. Thanks.

You have created a loop. Post some code, please.

Moving this to the Swing / JFC / AWT forum...
