Windows explorer type split pane

Hi,

I am unsure how I will implement the following but I will try phrase the question as best I can, and perhaps someone can point me in the right direction?
  I want a split pane - left component is a Windows explorer type tree of directories only, the right component is a JTable of the files (exclude sub-directories) in the currently selected node.

*the directory tree starts at a specified root location and the user cannot go up a level
*the right pane lists files in a table - associated attributes (from a hardcoded attribute list) can be added / removed as columns in the table -> these attributes
      are XML based and are retrieved from the individual files

Any ideas?? - I want it all to be reuseable,
  *the directory tree specifies a root
  *the file table specifies its attributes

I just want help with:  
 * what classes should I have and extend?
 * any pointers with how to handle the XML idea because I know nothing!!

Thankyou.

I believe you must extends the Model creating your own (TableModel & TreeModel).

 * any pointers with how to handle the XML idea because I know nothing!!
For managing XML there is java XML API with DOM objects.

not sure if you are aware of JSplitPane or not.

If the JTable is displayed in a JScollPane, the Header are visible automatically.
If no, you must add the header manually to the panel where you are displaying.

Bye, Giant.

adding manually:
    JPanel ppp=new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
    ppp.add(yourJTable.getTableHeader(),BorderLayout.NORTH);
    ppp.add(yourJTable,BorderLayout.CENTER);
    scrolPane.getViewport().add(ppp,null);
