I am the author of Glazed Lists, a Java library that
provides table sorting and filtering, similar to JDNC.
For the Glazed Lists website I am creating a document
to compare the Java libraries that can be used to add
interactive sorting to a JTable.
Needless to say, JDNC lives up to its goal by making
this easy to do with little code.
I have 2 questions:
- Is it possible to use multiple Comparators for a single
column with JXTable? For example, for a column with 2
comparators: one that is case-sensitive and another that is not.
These would be selected by using a modifier ('CTRL' etc)
or by clicking several times on the table's header.
- Is it possible to sort using multiple columns simultaneously?
I read in your mailing list archive that this can be set up
programatically, but I want to know if this can be done interactively
simply by clicking on multiple column headers.

Thanks for your time and a great toolkit!
