create a new Date out of the current Date's milliseconds + n*(milliseconds in a day).
but this is a real 'hack'.
better to create a calendar object, add 7 days, then format calendar.getTime()

conversion from String to Date and vice versa is done using the class SimpleDateFormat, which is in the java.text package. You can search on it in google and find Suns javadoc page which is an excellent reference on how to use it.
