Hi, Jerwin, welcome with your first post! A bit of advice - change your name to two parts, like "first last" before the Sherrif comes around and gives you a (mildly) hard time.

Swing is part of the JDK so you already have it. It can be a bit overwhelming the first time through. Google for "java swing tutorial" or see if you can pick up an introductory book. There is a Swing forum here at the Ranch. As you get little bits of running code - or almost running code - drop in there to share what you've done and ask for more help.

The Java Tutorial is a free, extensive resource available for download or online viewing at java.sun.com. The Java Tutorial has Swing tutorials and a whole lot more.
