you can display it as HTML - use JEditorPane with content type "text/html":

      StringBuffer buff = new StringBuffer();
      buff.append("<Table>");
      buff.append("<TR>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("Field 1");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("Field 2");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("Field 3");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("</TR>");

      buff.append("<TR>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("xxx");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("yyy");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("zzz");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("</TR>");

      buff.append("<TR>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("aaa");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("bbbb");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("c");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("</TR>");

      buff.append("<TR>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("ddd");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("ff");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("<TD>");
      buff.append("gg");
      buff.append("</TD>");
      buff.append("</TR>");

      buff.append("</Table>");
      jEditorPane1.setContentType("text/html");
      jEditorPane1.setText(buff.toString());

Use a JTable
Heres an example:

Object[] columns = { "Field1", "Field2", "Field3" };
Object[][] data = {
  { "xxx", "yyy", "zzz" },
  { "aaa", "bbbb", "c" },
  { "ddd", "ff", "gg"}};

JTable table = new JTable(data, columns);
frame.getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(table));

Just look in the api help at the JTable constructors :

JTable(Object[][], Object[])
and
JTable(Vector, Vector)

I believe the second constructor is more realiable for you since the size of a Vector can grow dinamically, while of an array not (you don't know exactly in a resultSet the number of rows/columns)
