I think this works, but only tested on current day, so you may want to verify other dates. Calendar and Date don't seem to have a getLastDayOfMonth() or similar, so I coded some stuff. Not really sure if this is the best solution, but it seems to work.

ie try to find the length of 'month'
cal.setTime(new Date(year,month+1,day));
wish there was a more direct way to do it, maybe should say something to the lads at Sun
I agree. Here's the link:
