Okay first Im not completely sure this goes in here so I apologize if I made a mistake but anyway here we go. I have been working on a database program which stores calles and sorts the infomation stored in the database. I was finally able to get it working but my problem is this I can't get the database to show up in a window, for my program I have buttons allowing you to move forward and backward in the result set but I havent been able to find and swing type componet in which to display a small window that would allow me to see the database enteries, Im working with the JOptionPane class in the swing package as my GUI, and I have been scowering the API trying to find a method or class to work off of and apply to my program. If anyone knows of a class or method in the javax.swing package which will allow me to display a window into my database please let me know and if I need to start searching the SQL package could you point me in that direction.

Well, your question is a bit broad, but I believe what you want to do is display the contents of a database table in a tabular layout. If this assumption is correct, then you will want to use JTable. Also, you may want to check out the JDBC API.
