JTable

I am currently developing an application which uses a swing JTable and have no time to properly read the documentation.

Users are able to edit cells in the JTable, and I need to know how to create a Listener that simply provides me with the following:

* the String value that the user has typed into this cell
* the int value that represents the row of this cell
* the int value that represents the column of this cell

Thank you for your help.
So far, I have managed to write the following code:

public class MyTableModelListener implements TableModelListener {
        JTable table;
        public MyTableModelListener(JTable table) {
            this.table = table;
        }
        public void tableChanged(TableModelEvent e) {
            int firstRow = e.getFirstRow();
            int lastRow = e.getLastRow();
            int mColIndex = e.getColumn();
            switch (e.getType()) {
                case TableModelEvent.UPDATE:
                    for (int r=firstRow; r<=lastRow; r++) {
                        // (r, mColIndex)
                        // do whatever it has to do
                    }
                    break;
            }
        }
    }

Where I've written "// do whatever it has to do" I need to get the Object that is in that cell (In this case, a String), how do I do that?

Use getValueAt () ;

String value = ( String ) table.getValueAt ( r, mColIndex ) ;
