Trouble understanding dates in Java

I'm not new to Java, though every time I have to manipulate dates I have a hard time through the specification. Any help explaining how the classes Date, Calendar, Gregorian Calendar, SimpleDateFormat (are there others?) inter-connect would be much appreciated.

Really, what is it that you don't understand or have problems with? Some specific codes that you're having difficulties in, or a specific situation whereby you can't use the classes to do the work.
That will definitely help us help you

Filipe,
Assuming you haven't already seen it, perhaps the Gotchas Web page of Roedy Green's Java Glossary will help. Look for the discussion of the "java.util.Date" class.
Good Luck,
Avi.
