Hello,

I'm working on a J2SE desktop application (client/server) where I'm using beans binding to display the result of a query in a JTable.
How do I gain access to the bound object that corresponds to the currently selected row of the JTable?
I'm a new JAVA programmer and I'm using Java 5.0 + Netbeans IDE 6.1.

Well, I guess I did not formulate my question correctly:
I have a list of business objects displayed in JTable via beans binding (so that the list and the jTable are kept in sync at all times). I need to get a reference to the underlying business object (in the business object list) corresponding to the row selected in the JTable.
I had already figured that the Table property would be getSelectedRow, but I needed to be able to link that row to the source business object.
It turns out that the solution is quite simple in fact:
     int index = displayTable.getSelectedRow();
     mydesktopapplication.BusinessObject o = sourceList.get(index);
Thank you for your time, anyway!
