I have one date as String s = message[i].getSentDate().toString() and another one is Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance(); cal.add(Calendar.DATE,-1); SimpleDateFormat fmt = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd 'at' 14:00:00"); fmt.format(cal.getTime()); I want to put fmt.format(cal.getTime()) in a variable and compare it with s. I would like to know if the date is less or greater than the other. Whats the best way to do it Thanks, Vidhya

The Calendar class has all sorts of methods for comparing two dates. So I would convert my string into a Calendar and then do the comparison.
I suggest to convert both the object to Date object. Date class implements Comparable interface which has a method called compareTo(Object o). Using the method, one can compare two Date object. -------------- Nayan
