First: Please UseCodeTags (←click - and please read the page thoroughly; you may need to break up some of those long lines).
Second: Isolate the problem.
You're trying to display the time as AM/PM, so do that first and get it working before you add in all that GUI stuff.
Third: Have a look at the documentation for Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY. Why do you think it might not be what you want?
Fourth: Have a look at the docs for the rest of the Calendar class (particularly the fields). See any that you think might help?
Fifth: Why are you using a TimeStamp? Were you told to? Calendars work best with Dates (java.util.Date).
Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
