I'm working on a GUI that I'm doing a lot more complex items by the day. I've noticed that there is also a JXTable out there instead of just a JTable.

My question is simply this: before i get too deep into my project, are the benifits/costs of JXTable worth making a switch too over the standard JTable, or should i just wait to see if i run into something that the JXTable does that the JTable won't? (or won't easily).

It depends on what functionality you need: if JTable does everything you need then don't bother with JXTable. According to its documentation:

A JXTable is a JTable with built-in support for row sorting, filtering, and highlighting, column visibility and a special popup control on the column header for quick access to table configuration.


If you don't need any of that then don't use it.
