Entity Table

Open source project by the PC Automation Inc. software development team.

April, 2004.


EntityTable is a full-featured swing-based GUI component that represents a list of data Objects as rows in a table. The EntityTable conforms to the model/delegate framework and extends the functionality of the Java JTable.

The EntityTable provides a quick way to utilize any existing List objects and render them in a table. It supports a virtual column for labeling rows, and a virtual row for quickly adding new rows of data to the table. The EntityTable includes sorting functionality and allows the user to have a different ordering of the rows than that of the underlying data.

Support for hiding, locking, editing and sorting can be enabled on a column by column basis. The EntityTable also supports three focus modes for navigating and manipulating the table; cell, row and table.
