Changing data in a table

I have a JTable using a DefaultTableModel
I want users to be able to edit data in the table. This is not my problem.

My problem is that when the user edits this data, I want to be able to check the data before it gets stored to the table, and if it's invalid (for whatever reason), it should not be stored.

I was wondering how to do this?

Just validate it using methods of the TableModel. Normally there's no automatic storage anyway

public class MyTableCellEditor extends AbstractCellEditor implements TableCellEditor {
       
        // This method is called just before the cell value
        // is saved. If the value is not valid, false should be returned.
        public boolean stopCellEditing() {
            String s = (String)getCellEditorValue();
   
            if (!isValid(s)) {
                // Should display an error message at this point
                return false;
            }
            return super.stopCellEditing();
        }
    }

JTable table = new JTable();
   
    // Add some data...
   
    // Install the custom editor on the first column
    int vColIndex = 0;
    TableColumn col = table.getColumnModel().getColumn(vColIndex);
    col.setCellEditor(new MyTableCellEditor());

I thought by that you might mean the database table, as opposed to the JTable. Was i wrong?

Some times it gives confusion between swing table and database table when we use word table

When was a database even mentioned?
(Not that it actually makes any difference)
