You can split the application is portions like: GUI front end, sockets backend, utilities or helpers etc. Then focus on each part separately.

You may want to check out the Java tutorial here for Swing(GUI) and networking (sockets) before you dive into the actual coding.

You already know what topics is necessary. Refer to the tutorial link above and read about it. Start off with simple stuff, take the chat app apart piece by piece and develop each piece.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
