Here is the code :

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.table.*;

public class Test extends JFrame {
  public Test() {
    init();
  }

  private void init() {
    setSize(600, 400);
    setLocation(250, 200);
    getContentPane().setLayout(new BorderLayout());
    JTable table = new JTable();
    Object[][] data = new Object[5][3];
    for(int i = 0; i<5; i++) {
      for(int j = 0; j<3; j++) {
        data[i][j] = ("Data [" + i + ", " + j + "]");
      }
    }
    Object[] columns = new Object[3];
    columns[0] = "Column 0";
    columns[1] = "Column 1";
    columns[2] = "Column 2";
    table.setModel(new DefaultTableModel(data, columns));
    Class c1 = table.getColumnClass(0);
    Class c2 = table.getColumnClass(1);
    Class c3 = table.getColumnClass(2);
    table.setDefaultRenderer(c1, new X());
    table.setDefaultRenderer(c2, new X());
    table.setDefaultRenderer(c3, new X());
    table.setRowHeight(35);
    table.setRowMargin(3);
    getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(table), BorderLayout.CENTER);
  }

  class X extends JPanel implements TableCellRenderer {
    private JTextField tf = new JTextField(10);
    private JButton b = new JButton("Button");
    public X() {
      super();
      tf.setMargin(new Insets(0, 0, 0, 0));
      b.setMargin(new Insets(0, 0, 0, 0));
      add(tf);
      add(b);
    }

    public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable t,
    Object value, boolean selected, boolean hasFocus, int row, int col) {
      tf.setText(value.toString());
      return(this);
    }
  }

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    (new Test()).setVisible(true);
  }
}


Note : in order to see the desired components on the table, you must load them as default renderers for desired columns. If you want some editable fields coresponding to thowse you must implement and substitute also the cell editor.
Cheers.
