This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I will create a Room object that will contain the recNo. My table will then display the Room objects. I have read a thread that talks about the record number in the JTable but am still unsure. Just wondering do you have to create some sort of hidden column in the table containing the record number or is there an alternative approach.
Looks like one way to do it then is to maintain a list of Room objects in the table model which are in the same order as the rooms are displayed in the table. Then the table index of the selected row in the table will allow me to create the Room object from the appropriate list element.
