Here's a bit of verbage from the assignment: See http://www.javaranch.com/common.jsp and look for the GDate and JDate classes. Creating objects from these classes will help you to complete this assignment. You will need to download JavaRanchCommon.zip and work it into your classpath in order to use these classes.

Thanks to all of you that posted a reply to my original msg - I will use common.zip, JDate, etc., but I would like to suggest that we be allowed, at some point, to employ the full arsenal of Java language capabilities. Ta !!

Don I agree but untill you have completed all these assignments I would advise sticking to the constraints they set inorder to learn that paticular lesson. Good luck with the assignments
