OK, so what is it? Or maybe better: what Java code have you written to translate it? If you show us that, we might be able to help.
Basically, for anything more difficult than "Hello World", your code should be the final step in a long process. It should NOT take most of your time; nor should it be the thing that you start doing to solve a problem. The average professional programmer probably spends 20% of his/her time actually coding (often less), because the rest of it is spent in describing and understanding the problem. And you don't normally need Java for that.
If you're interested, have a look at the WhatNotHow (←click) page. It may help.
