Good day everyone. I am somewhat stuck on something that seems so simple. Q: I am trying to write a small app. which will accept the current day of a year and output the correct previous day and DATE. This should take into regards Leap year difference and anything else. I'd like to be able to do this possibly using 1 or a few of the methods that the Java API offers. Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
This isn't as easy as it may look at first, Ther isn't an easy way to creat a Calendar or GregorianCalendar object from a string and any method to change a date is depricated. After some study a possible solution is :
The output is now Enter a Date in mm/dd/yyyy format 03/01/2000 Todays Date = 03/01/2000 Yesterdays Date = 02/29/2000 -and- Enter a Date in mm/dd/yyyy format 03/01/1900 Todays Date = 03/01/1900 Yesterdays Date = 02/28/1900 -and- Enter a Date in mm/dd/yyyy foramt 01/01/2000 Todays Date = 01/01/2000 Yesterdays Date = 12/31/1999
This is better I hope

Carl, Thank you very much. I appreciate this. I had 1st thought it was quite simple, but as I looked at it more closely, I saw small problems. I suppose I was hoping for a buildt method within the java.util.Date or Calendar classes for automatically being able to convert dates. And even when I did mess around with the logic, I ended up solving most of the problems but leaving behind a few critical points. Thank you very much. Feel free to ask any Qs as well.
