JTable GUI in concurrent environments

I have a question regarding display of data records in a JTable. If any other users change the data records, how should this be reflected in the multiple GUI's? Should the server send event to all the clients or is it adequate to assume that records might be out of date and that the users should refresh the JTable contents once in a while using the search mechanism? I am trying to find the adequate level of ambition...

Hi Ole,

The way most people approach this is not to try to dynamicaly update the view, but check for dirty reads when updating the database and showing an error message if this is the case.

Regards,

Jon
