How to Create a GUI plug-in

Hi all,
  I am a novice developer for JIDEA and I have only a basic knowledge.I need to write a plug-in for inelliJIDEA and it is a mandatory requirement of our project. I need to create a time-tracking plug-in for inelliJIDEA. So I need to create GUI's and connect that plugin into a database too. I googled for few weeks and I could't find something important for that.  If you have any articles, demos or anything realted to that please let me know. After creating that GUI plug-in it should appear in the IDE by the Side. (Similar as the appearance of the plug-in IDEtalk). How to create a simple GUI application like this? Now I am really helpless, please help me.

Thanks and Best regards,
Asanka Sirwardena

This type of question is better directed at the openapi newsgroup/forum.
That's where people discuss the OpenAPI that is used to write plugins in
IDEA. However, the source code for many plugins, including the IDEtalk plugin,
are available for you to look at and learn from. Probably the best place
for you to start learning is here:

http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/plugins/plugin_developers.html

Once you are underway and start hitting any specific problems, I'd suggest
trying to find a plugin that does something similar and have a look at the
source for it (assuming it is available; it often is). If you can't figure
it out that way or via the OpenAPI javadocs, you can try the openapi forum
and someone's bound to be able to help.

Good luck!
