You could also write a table model (i.e. List implementation) that behaves this way (fetches
pages only as needed).

However, overall TableView performance should be pretty good even with large data sets. See
this demo app:


You can get sample data files here:


Copy them to a local directory and pass the base path to the app; e.g.:


On my machine, it loads a million rows in less than 10 seconds, and scrolls smoothly. Make
sure you allocate enough heap space, though - I needed 1.5GB to load the largest data file:

  -Xms128m -Xmx1536m
