You need an object holding all the data you need. And you need an adapter
to display the data in a suitable form.

E.g. JFace TableViewer uses java.lang.Object for holding the data and
the custom implementation of the interface ...ContentProvider and
do the instructions for displaying the data.

So you could use a Vector holding target objects holding the data you need
(e.g. you use
Ant´s own Target class :). When usings Swing provide a factory method which
converts this
list to a TableModel. When using SWT/JFace write the *Provider.
