Hi guys, how are you all. Hope you are all doing good.

I was jsut wondering, if i want to create my own clock - Application which just displays, time, exactly like wall clock in our houses. How do i do that. What steps do i take, how cann i make it into an application? by writing java, i can not make exe. how would i install the application, without any server intervention. lot of doubts.
1. How do i do it.
2.How would i package it and install it.

1. How do i do it.
a) how will i get that graphics of wall clock with seconds hand, minutes hand and hours hand.
b)how can i say something to move in clockwise direction, or anti clockwise direction.
c) what classes are available for me?
d) how can i implement graphics in that program, like ripples in water for every click on clock.
e) like this many thoughts are there in mind.

I want to do this. I have plenty of time, i agree i do not have enough knowledge, but i want to do it by learning. i do not know how to approach to this program, Just was thinking to get some guidence from you guys.

How can i diffuse my thoughts to get this done in to small methods.

Please guide me with this.

That are a lot of questions. You could start by looking at the classes Timer and JPanel. With those you should be able to accomplish a lot.

But most important get some experience with Java. That way you'll experience how to package programs and see what kind of classes are available.
