import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Properties;
public class datecalc {
public static void main(String args[]){
Calendar rightNow = Calendar.getInstance();
int julianDay = rightNow.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR);
int day = rightNow.get(Calendar.DATE);

// Create a copy of the rightNow Calendar object
Calendar baseCal = (Calendar)rightNow.clone();
// Subtract 5 days from the date
int i =rightNow.add(Calendar.DATE, -5);

When I do this i get an error on i as incompatible datatypes.
which datatype does add(Calendar.DATE) return?

Please follow up your discussion in the original thread rather than starting a new thread for each related question. Thanks.

I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
