Swing. More Joy.

Compared to a wxGrid, it's altogether too complicated adding rows and selecting cells in a JTable. I still don't fully understand cell selection and focusing and it grates me when what's supposed to take 5 minutes of Googling for the answer to add a feature to a simple GUI app turns into a drawn-out schlep with false starts and dead-ends and head-scratching.

JTable comboboxes are keyboard-friendly, though, and there's more sample code and discussion for Swing functionality than there is for wxWidgets. Breaks my heart to admit it, but it's true.
