Is there a way to create a JTable from a GUI very easily? I created a "Payroll Calculator" code with a GUI and need to populate the data into a row of a JTable, but I can't think of a way to accomplish this easily. The GUI code is below.

Java Code:
package payrollCalculator;

import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JComboBox;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.JTable;
import javax.swing.JTextField;

public class payrollCalculatorFrame extends JFrame{

    private JPanel employeeName; //Employee name panel
    private JPanel salary;       //Employee salary panel
    private JPanel hours;        //Employee hours panel
    private JComboBox departments;     //Departments combo box
    private JLabel empNameLabel;      //employee name label
    private JLabel empDeptLabel;      //employee department label
    private JLabel salaryLabel;   //employee Salary label
    private JLabel empHourLabel;
    private JTextField empName;
    private JTextField selectedDept; //The selected department
    public JTextField salaryValue;
    public JTextField hourValue;
    private JButton calcButton;
    private double hour;
    private double salAmt;
    private final JTable empData;
    
    
    /*
    Constructor for the GUI
    */
    
    public payrollCalculatorFrame() {
        
        super("Payroll Calculator");
        setSize(700, 150);
        
        
        //default close operation
        setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
        
        //Layout manager
        setLayout(new BorderLayout());
        
              
        //build the panels
        //create panel employeeName
        employeeName = new JPanel();

        //label for employee text
        empNameLabel = new JLabel("Employee Name:");
