Is it possible to format the cost in the JTable so it shows up as a dollar amount? For example, $400 instead of just 400? I've looked at the Swing tutorial, and it doesn't seem that getClass() will help because the field will be either a String or and Integer. The option I see is possibly using the WeirdRenderer pattern to force a different rendering for that column.
Furthermore, would this be a waste of time?
