Date Comparison : 48 hour rule

Sorry if this has been asked before but had a search and couldn't find it.

How are you guys checking 48 hour rule ?

My first thought was take date (in form yyyy/mm/dd) and create a GregorianCalendar.
Now take current date and do same.
Call getTimeInMillis() on both and compare.
As long as current is before and less than 2 days worth of milliseconds its ok.

But I don't really like this solution.
Plus not sure what time of day is defaulted to if you create a GregorianCalendar with just year, month, day.

Thoughts ?
