Excluding Saturday and Sunday, I want to calculate remaining days difference (count) in two given date objects. Please hit back ASAP.

Just an initial thought here.
First get the difference in dates including weekends:
Calendar cal1 = Calendar.getInstance(); cal1.setTime(date1); Calendar cal2 = Calendar.getInstance(); cal2.setTime(date2); int days = cal1.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR) - cal2.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR); // if the years are different, correct it
Then subtract the number of weekends between them.

You may want to have a look at Joda Time, I believe some variation will be included with Java 1.7, and it makes for easy time/date calculations. I don't believe it will remove the weekends for you, but could make it a bit easier.
I agree. Here's the link:
