Hi everyone. I am newbie here and wants to ask a question. I have a jtable who has values from a database. I want to have a refresh button so that when I press it, it will refresh the table. Here is the code.

String sql = "Select * from transaction";
PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery();

for(int x=0;;x++){
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("customername"), x, 0);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("description"), x, 1);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("typepaper"), x, 2);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("assigned"), x, 3);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("comments"), x, 4);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("month"), x, 5);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("day"), x, 6);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("Year"), x, 7);
table.setValueAt(rs.getString("copies"), x, 8);

I know some codes about table.setModel(new javax.swing.table.DefaultTableModel()); will refresh your table but I can't get it to work. Can someone help me refresh my table?
