You basically have two options:

1) Study RFC 959 and implement it.

2) Google for a thirdparty FTP library that will handle the low-level protocol stuff for you, and build your app on top of that.

Writing a complete FTP client is not a good project if you are new to programming; there'll be too many things for you to implement that you do not yet understand. Following Jeff's advice and building something on top of a library like Apache Commons Net would be more feasible.
