Dynamic JTable rows

I am attempting to write a program to track serial numbers of products that are sent out on sales orders. This really isn't for anyone, it is just something I came up with based on an experience I had at the place I worked while I was out of school for Christmas.
Anyway, I am trying to use a JTable to allow a user to enter a part number and a serial number in a row in two cells. As a row is populated, I need to add another blank row to the JTable. The problem is, I am not sure how to go about dynamically adding rows to a table. If a JTable is not the best way to go about this, please offer any suggestions.
As it is probably obvious, I am still trying to learn Java, and this program is nothing more than my trying to improve my understanding of the language. Please help, thanks

Welcome to the Ranch Adam.
Try using DefaultTableModel.addRow(...)
And here is the the section How to use Tables in the Java Tutorial.

Thanks for the info. I have it working now. One other question, is there a way I can give the first cell of the new row the focus so the the user can simply type another number without having to click in the cell first?
