I have a jtable and a button a dialog.  the number of rows in the table is different every time the application is run.  What i want to do is, when the button is clicked it runs a process and completes.  when it finishes and a boolean is set true (if false do nothing) then i want to see which row is selected and change every row 's background to red that comes after the selected row.

So far I see no easy way to change the background of individual rows in a jtable so i'm assuming i'll need to use a renderer of sorts.  Does anyone know how i can achieve this?
