Default Whats wrong with the GUI display

Hi everyone,

I got a piece of Swing code and instead of showing the column names as One,Two,Three it shows A,B,C in the JTable!!! Can someone tell me whats wrong?

package test;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.color.*;
import javax.swing.BorderFactory;
import javax.swing.border.Border;
import javax.swing.border.TitledBorder;
import javax.swing.event.*;
import java.sql.*;
import javax.swing.table.AbstractTableModel;
import java.util.*;

class TableDemo extends JPanel implements ActionListener{

    //public variables
    public JTable table;
    public JButton button;
    private Vector data=new Vector(100);
    String[] columnNames={"one","two","Three"};
    public final AbstractTableModel model;

    public TableDemo(int totalRows,int totalCols){
       super(new GridBagLayout());
       model=new MyTable(totalRows,totalCols);
       table=new JTable(model);
       //adding the table to the scroll pane
       add(new JScrollPane(table));

       //adding the button and the event listener
       button=new JButton("Go");


     public void add(int rows,int cols){
         for(int r=0;r<rows;r++)
           for (int c=0;c<cols;c++){
                data.add("Extra Hi");

     //Action Event
     public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){

         for (int i=0;i<columnNames.length;i++){
         data.add("Extra Hi");

         System.out.println("someone pressed the button!");
        System.out.println("Current No of Rows "+data.size()/columnNames.length);


     //main thread
     public static void main(String[] args){
       JFrame frame=new JFrame();
       frame.getContentPane().add(new TableDemo(10,3));
       frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOS E);

   //this is the Abstract Model class for the Table
   class MyTable extends AbstractTableModel{

     //this will go in the constructor
     public MyTable(int noOfRows,int noOfCols){

             //gotta get the total no of elements reqd to be populated in the vector
             //when we consider it as a 2D matrix
             int totalNoOfElements=noOfRows*noOfCols;
             for (int i=0;i<totalNoOfElements;i++){


     public void addNewRows(int row,int col){
              int totalNoOfElements=row*col;
             for (int i=0;i<totalNoOfElements;i++){
                 data.add("Extra Hi");


  public int getRowCount(){

             //this should be the total elements/no fo columns!Pretty simple huh?
             int size=data.size()/columnNames.length;
             System.out.println("Row Count:"+size);
             return size;
            //return data.length;


  public int getColumnCount(){
          return columnNames.length;

  public Object getValueAt(int row,int col){
          //this needs to be done for a vector now!
          return (Object)data.get((row)*(col));

  public void setValueAt(Object obj,int row,int col){


}//inner class ends here

}//main class ends here
