update a table cell on keypress

update a table cell on keypress

I am trying to update a table cell on key press.
    I have a table that gets the selected row and column with focusGained()
  but I am having trouble updating cell on key release with the key event/key released. The cell will update  if it losses focus and I then return to it. Is there a way I can update the cell on key-release without overriding table model? if not can some one help with  how to override table model so that on key-release will update the cell?
  relevant code below:


        table2.addFocusListener(new FocusListener(){

                public void focusGained(FocusEvent arg0) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                    System.out.println("your here");

                public void focusLost(FocusEvent arg0) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                    System.out.println("your a bitch");
            table2.addKeyListener(new KeyListener(){

                public void keyPressed(KeyEvent arg0) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                    System.out.println("some shit just happened"+ table2.getValueAt(table2.getSelectedRow(), table2.getSelectedColumn()));

                public void keyReleased(KeyEvent arg0) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

                public void keyTyped(KeyEvent arg0) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
thank you in advance for helping
