I use the Calendar class as all familiar Date Constructor/methods are deprecated.

This backs up the calendar one day.
The Java 2 API docs are pretty good in showing how to use this class.
Hope this helped.

SOURCE CODE should be SURROUNDED by "code" tags.

import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Calendar;
public class Prev
public static void main(String args[])
Calendar xx = Calendar.getInstance();
Date dt = null;
dt = xx.getTime();
System.out.println("Yesterday Is : " + dt.getDate());
