Just wonder, is there an easy way to set a future date in Javascript using the Date object?

See I was looking at the Java Calendar object and you can do something simple like:



To set the date to the current date + 90 days.

Now I need to do something liek this in Javascript, but there is no Calendar object in Javascript , only the Date object and from what I can see you can not set a futire date in this way using Date().

Does anyone knwo hoe to do this?
