hi everybody,
i have a java assignment in which i have to write the code for a java message board. Firstly im unsure if i would have to create a GUI that is a meassge board or just write a message board that is a GUI if that makes sense.
So far i have began by attempting to write a GUI but cannot seem to manage even the simplest. i have encluded some very basic code that i have started with. any help is much appreciated

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class MessageBoard {

public MessageBoard() {


super(" Message Board GUI");
