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.

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.
