    Default Creating and implementing class for creating a calendar object

    Hi, so I have to create and implement a class for creating calendar objects. Some of the behaviours that the class has to do is:

    - Print a display for a given month and year
    - Print a display for the current month
    - Get the current date
    - Set the current date
    - Roll the calendar date forward or backward by a given number of days or months
    - A toString() method.

    I also have to provide a selection of constructors with default values for the variables.

    Now.. I have absolutely, no f*****g clue of what to do. I don't even know where to start. Please, please, please, could somebody give me a nudge in the right direction of where to start?

    Thanks in advance.

    First you need to understand each of the class's requirements.
    Are there any you don't understand?
    Have you looked at the Java classes dealing with calendars to see how they work.
    Is the display to be in a GUI window or on the console?

    Hey Norm, thanks for the reply.

    I don't think I understand what you mean, and you don't understand what I mean. I have to write my own calendar class to do the things I wrote in the OP. Not implement the existing calendar class.

    Cross posted at Creating and implementing class for creating a calendar object

    I didn't say to USE the existing calendar class. I said to look at how they work to get ideas.
