a ball have radius 20 when i press a button once the radius increase by 5 subsequent clicks have the same effect until a max radius of 30 is reached after this the effect of click is to reduce the radius by 5 until it reach 10. after this a click cause a radius increase by 5 and so on.... maintaining the radius within the upper and lower limits....

please what is the code ......

Divide up your problem, word it so you can make it understood what you're trying to do.

And no, we're not here to build your code for you. That's your job. We CAN help you find logic or other errors in the code if you can show us your code and tell us 1) what it does and 2) what it should be doing.

ok, so you have had some IDE autogenerate a piece of code for you without the parts that are important to your application (what's called the business logic).
A few mouseclicks in JBuilder will give me the same.

Now comes the thinking, good luck with that and trying to find out what it is you want to happen when that mouse is clicked...
