I am writing a time card application. Initially it is going to be very simple. Just a desktop app to create, edit, save and print a basic time card. I have identified some very basic entity classes that seem to be able to describe this simple domain as well as there relationship among each other (i.e. TimeCard, Day, Record, Date). However, I am suffering from some form of coding paralysis now that I am attempting to develop the control and view aspect of the project. Any advise or recommended readings would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

First off, change your name. The JavaRanch has a naming policy and they are going to tell you to change it sooner or later.
As for your problem, you will have to be more specific for anyone to help you. Give us the details on what you are trying to accomplish.
Hopefully we can be of some help.

Name change- DONE! Thanks
I guess my current question is more about design then anything else. What are the (general) design steps you take when you build a simple app? When is it time for the 'rubber to hit the road' or to start writting actual code?
thanks
