Helllo thejwal, and welcome to the Ranch! Here's a link to the Oracle Swing tutorial, which is full of sample code to help your learning: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/index.html

If and when you have a Swing related question, the place to post it is the Swing / AWT / SWT / JFace forum. And you're sure to get good responses if you follow the guidelines in How To Ask Questions On Java Ranch.

For creating a Calendar GUI, you'll also want to be familiar with java.util.Calendar (and its concrete implementation, GregorianCalendar) and java.util.Date. Any questions about these classes will sit well in this forum.
