Table with undefined size and scrollbars as needed

I would like to add a table to a panel with full size (application layout) so that the table does not consume more space than needed. The only solution that I found was to set the table size to undefined. However, in this case the table loses the feature for displaying scrollbars if the panel size gets lower than the table size and users won't be able to see the whole content anymore.
Is it possible to achieve that the table component shrinks with the panel size but displays scollbars when they are needed?

I know one can activate scollbars for the surrounding panel, but this is not as nice as using the more appropriate table scollbars.
