From JGuru:
In the Model-View-Controller (MVC) world of Swing, the JTable is just a display mechanism. Instead of selecting rows in the table (view), you select rows in the selection model:

ListSelectionModel selectionModel =
  table.getSelectionModel();
selectionModel.setSelectionInterval(start, end);

You can also select multiple blocks of non-contiguous rows, using the addSelectionInterval() method.
The first row selection should be done with setRowSelectionInterval(i,j)

The subsequent row selections (in the same JTable) should be done with addRowSelectionInterval(i,j)

(Columns are selected similarly.)

From Java Almanac:

    int rows = 10;
    int cols = 5;
    JTable table = new JTable(rows, cols);
   
    // Use this mode to demonstrate the following examples
    table.setSelectionMode(ListSelectionModel.MULTIPLE_INTERVAL_SELECTION);
   
    // The following column selection methods work only if these
    // properties are set this way
    table.setColumnSelectionAllowed(true);
    table.setRowSelectionAllowed(false);
   
    // Select a column - column 0
    table.setColumnSelectionInterval(0, 0);
   
    // Select an additional range of columns - columns 1 to 2
    table.addColumnSelectionInterval(1, 2);
   
    // Deselect a range of columns - columns 0 to 1
    table.removeColumnSelectionInterval(0, 1);
   
   
    // The following row selection methods work only if these
    // properties are set this way
    table.setColumnSelectionAllowed(false);
    table.setRowSelectionAllowed(true);
   
    // Select a row - row 0
    table.setRowSelectionInterval(0, 0);
   
    // Select an additional range of rows - rows 1 to 2
    table.addRowSelectionInterval(1, 2);
   
    // Deselect a range of rows - rows 0 to 1
    table.removeRowSelectionInterval(0, 1);
   
   
    // The following cell selection methods work only if these
    // properties are set this way
    table.setColumnSelectionAllowed(true);
    table.setRowSelectionAllowed(true);
   
    // Select a cell: cell (2,1)
    int row = 2;
    int col = 1;
    boolean toggle = false;
    boolean extend = false;
    table.changeSelection(row, col, toggle, extend);
   
    // Extend the selection to include all cells between (2,1) to (5,3)
    row = 5;
    col = 3;
    toggle = false;
    extend = true;
    table.changeSelection(row, col, toggle, extend);
   
    // Deselect a cell: cell (3,2)
    // All cells in the row and column containing (3,2) are deselected.
    row = 3;
    col = 2;
    toggle = true;
    extend = false;
    table.changeSelection(row, col, toggle, extend);
   
    // This method actually toggles the selection state so that
    // if it were called again, it exactly reverses the first call.
    // Select cell (3,2) as well as the other cells that
    // were deselected in the first call.
    toggle = true;
    extend = false;
    table.changeSelection(row, col, toggle, extend);
   
    // Select all cells
    table.selectAll();
   
    // Deselect all cells
    table.clearSelection();
