    That explains your assignment but not the problem you are facing. It would be inappropriate to expect someone else to code this for you (I hope you do not presume that way).

    The best place to start is the Java tutorial. A Google search would reveal several other good resources.

    In my opinion (nothing to do with the assignment), your assignment would have been interesting to code with Swing.
