    Default Help with starting program

    Hi
    I am having trouble starting my program.
    I have been given a brief to create a java applet world clock.

    He runs a travel company and would like visitors to his site to find out the current time of 5 large cities around the world, based on the current time in Hobart. His aim is to get people interested with these cities and then purchase a travel package off him.
    If this marketing idea works, he would like the application to eventually be able to list the time of all the major cities in the world in a similar fashion.
    He does not want times “scraped” off other websites but rather worked out form a central source, such as GMT standard deviations. Issues such as daylight saving’s need to be taken into account.
    The final readout should display the time both in 24-hour time as well as 12-hour time with the appropriate AM/PM symbol included.
    I am struggling to think of a GUI design.
    We have just done lessons on objects so I would assume that objects need to be used.

    Thanks for any help contributed.

    Yes, it's plain rude! Just imagine I take the time to give you a long and detailed answer and you already got a similar response somewhere else.
    Users here are hepling voluntarily in the spare time. Don't waste poeple's time by crossposting.
