hihi.. how can i do a initialzation of date to 2nd June 2005, then add 3 days of the last date value? below is a sample of my code.

import java.util.Date;

public class Calendar {
private static Date today;

public static Date getDate() {
return (Date)today.clone();
}

public static void tock(int days) {
//add advance date (7 days)???
}
}

I won't post code here, you can figure it out by looking at the SimpleDateFormat class.
Another thing, avoid to call your class "Calendar", because it's already an Java API class.

yes, I think you can use these apis and codes:
apis:
SimpleDataformat
java.util.GregorianCalendar.

codes:
.....

public Date getTheAfterDay(Date date, int days) {
GregorianCalendar startCalendar = new GregorianCalendar();
startCalendar.setTime(date);
startCalendar.add(GregorianCalendar.DATE, days);
return startCalendar.getTime();
}

You need import java.util.Date and java.util.GregorianCalendar .
Good Luck!
