Table component more advanced than JTable

Is anyone aware of any JTable alternatives that would implement some of the missing functionality, in particular the ability to "group by" a particular value? Add summaries (totals, averages, etc)?

There's plenty of those types of components in the .Net world (and coming from a PowerBuilder background I myself got very used to its incredibly flexible DataWindow table/grid component), so I was hoping there are some advanced table components than JTable for Swing as well....

Any links or suggestions would be much appreciated,

P.S. Preferably open-source components.

Are these features not totally model bases? In other words; just a different model behind an existing JTable would solve all your problems.

I'm pretty sure that model does not even have to be really hard (unless you want the flexibility of a spreadsheet) so if you fail to find one; it would indeed be a nice OSs component to make.

ps. look at the archives of this forum and find a product announcement for a spreadsheet. It was a cool looking spreadsheet that seemed very feature complete.
