1. Define you JLists with ListModels

JList myList = new JList (myListModel);

Using models, you can add and delete elements from the model really easily, using listModel.addElement() and removeElement().

2. Wrt to the buttons, add a MouseListener to the button and then use the the event to add the selected items from list1 to list2.  

which would look kinda like this.
myAddButton.addMouseListener(new MouseAdaptor() {
  public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
   
    if (myList1.getSelectedItems() != null) {
        add(myList2, myList1.getSelectedItems());  //add items to list2 Model
        remove(myList1, myList1.getSelectedItems());  //Remove items from List1Model.
  }

}
}
);

Repeat this for the remove button and you should be good.
