Hello, What I want to achieve is quite simple to describe, i.e. I want to return the current date (as a java.util.Date) out of which I will have substracted 30 days. For example today's date is the 20th December 2007, I want to get the following date: 20th December 2007 - 30 days that is the 20th of November. Any clue? Thanks in advance, Julien.
