Setting the data in a JTable

I have a table, that allows users to sort the data. They can also select any of the rows in the JTable, and it throws the information into text fields, so they can modify the data. Once they hit save, the data in the table is refreshed. My problem I am running into, is if the user has sorted the table into the order they want it, then hit save, the data in the JTable is set back to its original order.
How can I refresh the data of the JTable when it changes, without reordering the rows?

Below is how I am setting the data of the table:



And I am using Sun's TableSorter class to sort the columns
Here is a link to that class:
TableSorter

Thanks for any help!!

I think I found a workaround. I added a variable to TableSorter that holds the index of the last column sorted on. Whenever I refresh the data in the table, I run the sortByColumn() method on the TableSorter class using the
index of the last column that was sorted on.

If anyone has a better solution, please let me know!

Thanks!
