GUI chat room

I need to do the following:

write a Java program to implement the GUI for a chat program. The program should include components attached to a form: a text field, a pop-up choice-group and up to 8 string items which will be messages entered by the user. Users should be presented with two commands, �Send� and �Exit�.
Beneath the text field and user selection choice-group, there should always be no more than 8 string items, also identifying which user wrote which message. When a message is added to the group of messages, the text field should be erased ready for the next message. After 8 messages have been added to the group of messages, any additional messages are added to the
end of the group and the first (oldest) message is removed. Another way to describe this is to display only the last 8 messages entered.

Can i get any help here?

That really sounds like a homework assignment. Why don't you make a start and get back to the ranch when you encounter specific problems.

How are you stuck? What does the code do now, what do you intend to implement next, and what gets in your way so that you can't make progress?

Since this is about J2ME, I'll move it to the appropriate forum.
I agree. Here's the link:
