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
, 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.
