JXTable and LAF provided alternate row color - revisited
we have been struggling with the problem on and off - me always retreated into: that's not the SwingX way of life, pointing fingers to others to adjust. Recently, I got an idea (actually implemented in a closed-source project) which would allow to have the best of both: make CellContext responsible to return the alternate color if available.
That's a slight drift from Highlighter-only-for-visuals dogma - on the other hand: laf-provided colors _could_ be regarded as defaults to be supplied by the context.
Note: this would not work for Nimbus - which has major problems with transparency - because SwingX explicitly removes the uiproperty in tableAddon.
