Hi ....
I want to calculate date difference between 2 DIFFERENT DATE FORMATS ... one of my date format is "yyyy/mm/dd" and the other date format is "yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss" ............... how can i calcaulate the difference between these two dates and then display the result in a String in the format of yyyy/mm/dd ???.???
more over i want to make a comparision also ... like if(date1 > date 2) .. then i = 1 else i =0;
So i want help on 2 things .....
1. Finding difference
2. Comparing and then incrementing value of a temp variable.
plz some one help me out on this .........................
Thanx

Look at the methods in the java.util.Date class.

This is pretty much the same question you posted a little while ago (and which has been moved to the Java in General/Intermediate forum). Please do not post the same question multiple times in either the same, or across multiple, forums.
thanks,
