Time between two time values

Hi there everyone. Hopefully somebody can help me with this problem. I've got a time value. i.e. 11:25, now I need to check if the time falls in between a range: I.E. 08:00 and 19:00. What's the best way of validating that this time falls in this range? I'm sure I can compare the integer values, but I'm looking for a something in the Calendar API's that can provide me with this kind of functionality.

Thanks
Martin

Calendar (and also Date) has before() and after() methods that you can use to see if a Calendar or Date represents a date and time that is before or after another date and time. See the API documentation for more information.
