MVC Question

I recently bought the HeadFirst Design Pattern and SCJD (authored by Monkhouse) and read them carefully. My question is about the model part of MVC. Because JTable has a model, and the M(odel) in MVC is also a model. Should we keep the JTable model in the big Model or keep it in the View? I can see the advantage of keep JTable model in View because when I select a record, I can disable or enable buttons by getting information from JTable model.

Perhaps it's the fractal geometry of application design -- there's use of MVC both in the small scale and on the large scale.

Hi,

JTable belong to View as Swing (visual) component.

And element which implements AbstractTableModel belong to Model.

JTable applies also a MVC: the model is represented by an implementation of TableModel (a custom AbstractTableModel or DefaultTableModel). So changing the content of your JTable occurs by passing a new TableModel to the JTable instance (calling method setModel(TableModel tableModel)). And the JTable will update its view.
