Hi, my question is if it's possible to make "interactive" JComboBox in JTable, this interactiveness should depends on selection item in one box and then the items of second box should change depending on the choice in the first box. I have write some code allready but it doesn't work as it should be, every advices are welcome.

Override the getCellEditor(...) method of JTable to determine which combo box to use.

Here is an example that changes the combo box based on the selected row. In your case you would choose which combo box to used based on the value of the related column.
