don't know the best way, but these steps seemed simple enough

using your code from the original source (Java2s)

in class JButtonTableExample:
add an int[] array equal to # of rows
add a mouseListener to the table
in mouseReleased, if column is the button column, intArray[row]++
pass a reference to the buttonRenderer (in the constructor) of the intArray[]

in class ButtonRenderer:
add a field int[], and pass it the reference from the constructor
create an ImageIcon[] of the 2 states you want
e.g. image1 and image2, or null and image1
in getTableCellRendererComponent(..) add this line:
setIcon(imageIconArray[intArray[row]%2]); //where 'row' is one of the parameters of the method

now, each time you click one of the table buttons, it's icon will alternate between
image1 and image2, or nothing and image1 (depending on how you set up the ImageIcon[])
