Does the GUI library in Swing have any equivalent of the .NET DataGrid.

This is quite a rich control that displays the results of dataTables, does Java have any equivalent of this???

Do you mean a JTable?

I'm looking for the same thing now.

It seems that Java does not have one, nor there is an open source project for one.

Such a shame. JTable is a pure display, whereas DataGrid contains the functionality to bind result into the table display. So ideally, there would be one component called JDataGrid.

JDataGrid = Jtable with all the 'good stuff' pre configured, that is able to read a ResultSet and render it properly with the ability to sort, paginate, and so on.

It's a very rich and useful component, one of the stuff I'm dearly missing in .NET.

It got me thinking about it too, if such a component was around, wouldn't applets be more widespread today?
