Make sure you have read the sun tutorial. There is a part of using JTable. There is also an example of adding a combobox to a column.
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/table.html#combobox

For adding a JButton to a cell you can also look at the solution at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/Q_22883043.html

If you have any problems regarding to this do not hesitate to post your question.

You can add the code in a separate init code block.
In your code there is a method called initComponents(); right?
After this method call you can add another method call. For example init();

And add a new method in your code where you add the code for the table.

Now you have added the code to your table.
private void init() {

        TableColumn comboboxColumn = jTable1.getColumnModel().getColumn(1);

        JComboBox comboBox = new JComboBox();

        comboBox.addItem("Snowboarding");

        comboBox.addItem("Rowing");

        comboBox.addItem("Chasing toddlers");

        comboBox.addItem("Speed reading");

        comboBox.addItem("Teaching high school");

        comboBox.addItem("None");

        comboboxColumn.setCellEditor(new DefaultCellEditor(comboBox));

 // ... etc.

}

Open in new window

You have to create a renderer and an editor for this cell to add a jbutton to it.
As I have posted in my first post there you will find a solution. For example at this site http://www.codeguru.com/java/articles/129.shtml
