hi
- you can create you own JPanel, overriding the paint() method to do your own stuff....(like drawing rectangels, circles, filling boxes writting text)
- use a JLabel with the text (or icons or whatever)
- use a JButton if you need to click it.
- im sure somebody did this before...if it was not an assignment, then search the web for a ready made component that does the trick
find more on java swing:
swing tutorial
if you give us more infos on what you wanna do, maybe we can gove more detailed answers.

Also check out GridLayout and GridBagLayout. As the names suggest, these let you create a grid of components. Each day could be a seperate descendant of JPanel as suggested above.
