Adding Object to Custom Table Model

I am using the below code as my custom table model.  Now, when I'm using either method .addMachine or .addMachineList, I do not get the objects to load in the table.  I know the JTable is taking the model because the column headers are being assigned.  Now, if I use my constructor which takes in a List, it still does not render the data.  Am I missing a function from the DefaultTableModel that I need to override?


      public class MachineListModel extends AbstractTableModel {
          private ArrayList datalist = new ArrayList();
          private String[] columns={"Name",
                                    "Job Number",
          public MachineListModel(){
          public MachineListModel(List l){
          public void addMachine(Machine m){
          public void addMachineList(List l){
          public Machine removeMachineAt(int row){
              Machine machine = (Machine)datalist.remove(row);
              return machine;
          public Machine getMachineAt(int row){
              return (Machine)datalist.get(row);
          public String getColumnName(int col){
              return columns[col];
          public int getRowCount() {
           return 0;

          public int getColumnCount() {
           return columns.length;

          public Object getValueAt(int row, int col) {
            Machine machine = (Machine)datalist.get(row);
                case 0:
                    return machine.getName();
                case 1:
                    return machine.getDescription();
                case 2:
                    return machine.getJobnumber();
                case 3:
                    return machine.getDepartment();
                    return null;

you aren't returning the row count.
should be:

return datalist.size();
