JTable just got enhanced with the new version of QuickTable. Designed as a complete control component, it’s supposed to serve as a JTable alternative to Javabean/Grid. All the missing features have been added as QuickTable was built on top of Jtable. If you already mastered JTable, you will not need any additional knowledge to use this component. A lot of more than useful features have been added such as Customizer, Calendar with a cell editor, Image cells, Excel copy/paste option, Skin, Sorting, Find & Replace, Printing and Print Preview.
There are four ways how anyone can use QuickTable, which is opensource now. QuickTable can be used as a collection grid, vector, array, fixed or delimited length data file grid, hibernate, dataobjects and EJBs grid or as a simple database grid. The most common use is as a database grid because of its high performance and reliability. In fact, when it comes to javabean database grid control, you will simply not go wrong with QuickTable absolutely.
If you have a need for coding up to 10 database grid swing screens, this component is what you are looking for. The best thing about it is that it can easily be created in four more than simple java statements. Now, the problem with more than one table in the active query is that you can’t control the updates of the joined tables. Well, with QuickTable now you can and this is the only component which allows deletes, updates or inserts, depending on what you need.
It is also the only javabean that has the feature that allows you to load enumeration, vector or collection of any java objects into JTable by creating a column for every data field within one object. QuickTable was designed to make things much easier than before by giving the user much more features than before. The user experience will be the best ever and the options are numerous. Everything that a previous version lacked, this version has and it works like a clock. Everyone who is into Java will be satisfied with it.
