Hi,
I think you may be knowing that there is a concept called DataTable ,DataGrid and DataBindings in (Microsoft).NET ... DataTable to hold the data from a Table in a DataBase.... DataGrid to display the data in a DataTable .... DataBindings to Bind Table in DataBase and the data in DataGrid ...

Is there any concept in JAVA to achieve this .....

I think there's nothing in Java that binds DB data so tightly to UI components as what .Net does. The Swing concept of a TableModel and a JTable could be used to implement something related. In a web app, the tag library DisplayTag does something similar.

GlazedLists will handle the row, table, resizing, sorting, etc. Very cool open source Java.

You will have to bind your business objects (rows) to the database, and hand your rows to the GlazedLists tools.

Binding Java objects to relational tables is a separate topic, I think there are serveral forums here on just that.

If your Business objects have fields that map clearly (one to one) with fields in the RDBMS tables, JDBC is not difficult to use. It is not as trivial to use as some of the .net stuff, but not hard.
