Often required for many Web Applications is the desire to display tabular data in a dynamic table in web pages. For some time now, SpryMedia came out with DataTables which does the trick, however, it did not support the Java Platform. It was written for the PHP platform. Miracles do happen though and Tactical Enterprises Ltd has recently released JED (Java Editor For DataTables).
Now we're getting somewhere! You can now use DataTables on the client side, along with JED for the backend to communicate with MySQL or Oracle databases. You can perform CRUD (Create,Read,Update and Delete) operations in your webpages with DataTables just as you could in a standalone application using SWING.
If you've been waiting for this kind of widget for your web applications, you don't need to wait any longer. CHECK IT OUT: http://jed-datatables.ca/jed/
