Does the GUI library in Swing have any equivalent of the .NET DataGrid.

This is quite a rich control that displays the results of dataTables, does Java have any equivalent of this???

I'm looking for the same thing now.

It seems that Java does not have one, nor there is an open source project for one.

Such a shame. JTable is a pure display, whereas DataGrid contains the functionality to bind result into the table display. So ideally, there would be one component called JDataGrid.

JDataGrid = Jtable with all the 'good stuff' pre configured, that is able to read a ResultSet and render it properly with the ability to sort, paginate, and so on.

It's a very rich and useful component, one of the stuff I'm dearly missing in .NET.

It got me thinking about it too, if such a component was around, wouldn't applets be more widespread today?
