    Question GUI for Linux OSProcess

    I have a Homework assignment and i have no idea how to build a basic Java GUI, i dont need the complete solution but can i have a solution in words as in an algorithm or where links/tutorials which i should read to gain enough knowledge to solve this one.

    The software shall have a GUI interface that:
    1) Has two buttons
    1. A button to start a user-defined process
    2. A button to stop the user-defined process
    3. Both buttons shall indicate what functions they perform
    2) Has a text-field that allows a user to enter the arguments to create a process
    3) Has a text-box that will allow text output from the created process to be view-able to the
    The executable software shall be one .jar file that allows the user to start the program
    so if i type ls -la in the textbox, the text field should be populated by the ls -la of the directory.
