    String[] columns = new String[]{"Column A", "Column B"};    
    JTable table = new JTable(data, columns);
    add(new JScrollPane(table));
    table.setDefaultRenderer(Object.class, new DefaultTableCellRenderer(){
      public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable table, Object value, boolean isSelected, boolean hasFocus, int row, int column)
        JLabel l = (JLabel)super.getTableCellRendererComponent(table, value, isSelected, hasFocus, row, column);
        return l;
    setSize(new Dimension(600, 300));
