    grouplayout with defaulttable model

      I am facing a problem while creating a table with default table model and using the group layout to lay all the components on the frame
      all the things are okay for compiling the program as I want but the problem is that all the components included in my table are displayed as strings, I want to know the reason without using other layout manager

      the code
      import javax.swing.*;
      import javax.swing.table.*;

      public class JobsFollowUp extends JFrame {
          //declare the buttons for adding the job and removing for the last row
          JButton addJobButton = new JButton("Add Job");
          JButton removeJobButton = new JButton("Remove Job");
          //declare the engineer names, attach to combo box
          private  final static String[] engineerNames = {"Mohamad Samy", "Ahmad El_Namoury", "Ahmad Ismail"
                                          ,"Mohamad El_Gazar", "Mohamad Tolba", "Mohamad El_Askary"};

          private  final static String[] progressCases = {"Finished", "In Progress", "Waiting SD"};
          JComboBox progressCasesComboBox = new JComboBox(progressCases);
          //declare the job description textField
          JTextField jobDescriptionTextField = new JTextField();
          //declare the job description textField
