    Default Free/Open Source Java GridView

    Are there any free or open source Java gridview (or datagrid) components out there?
    I am new to GUI Java development, I've made a few command line apps - now I'd like to create a graphical version of one of them.
    It would require a grid that would display three or four columns of data from a sqlite db - preferably the cells would be editable and new rows could be added simply by tabbing or clicking on the last row (similar to ComponentOne's TrueDBGrid or others)

    I've done a few searches but when I get to the lists of 'free' gridview controls, it seems free means $99+

    Thanks in advance!

    Better read the API documentation for the JTable class.

    kind regards,

    Why don't you give a try to write your own. A table is more likely to a grid, so that JTable is the control/component we used in Java. Just try to write a simple sample with JTable.

    Thanks for the replies! I'll give the JTable a go, see if it will do the trick.

    Thanks again! I am off to a great start with the JTable - we'll see how it goes.
