the TableModel Free framework on IBM developerWorks.
"This article introduces the TableModel Free (TMF) framework which eliminates the need to use TableModels with Swing JTables. The TMF framework allows for more configurable JTables by moving all of table-specific data outside of the compiled code and into a configurable XML file. Framework developer and Java UI enthusiast Michael Abernethy walks you through TMF framework, helping you reduce the size of a TableModel from hundreds of lines of code to just a single line, making management a snap.
