bid obvious, but indeed

make a functional analysis (not just the vague description, but more detailed).
based on that, decide on what objects you need, and what methods you'll require.
choose on IDE/text-editor, and start making the basic objects of your application.
complete the code.


don't hijack threads. these are questions you should rather decide on your own. I can summarize the reasons why, but if you google the java forum, you'll find tons of posts like this, where those reasons are already mentioned.
