I have situation where I need to calculate the dates as follows

last week
last Quarter

how do i achieve this .

say for example if today's date is 12/21/2011

i want to get "Yesterday" as 12/20/2011( this is simple) using calender class

how to achieve the last WEEK 12/11/2011 to 12/17/2011

And as far as Last quarter concerned

Q1 - January, February, and March
Q2 - April, May, and June
Q3 - July, August, and September
Q4 - October, November, December

if today's date is 12/21/2011

then last quarter would be Q3 07/01/2011 to 09/30/2011.

How do i achieve this with java date or calender class or by any other means.

Thanks In Advance.

Caculate the 'days' of every month for the year

just use Calendar.add(-days)
