Hi, i am trying to do someting like this:

A user choose a initial and a final date. For example:

Ini: 07/07/2004 Fin: 11/07/2004

Ok, what i need to do, is to get all dates between this two above. The answer needs to be...

08/07/2004 09/07/2004 10/07/2004

Is there a method that do this for me, i ve looking for but not finding ?

Thanks...

There is no method, but it should be easy enough. Have a look at the Calendar class and in particular its add(int field, int amount)
method.

Also to convert the string "07/07/2004" into a java.util.Date object (or the reverse) have a look at the java.text.SimpleDateFormat class.

Check the time component of dates that your have generated if that is used in your application.

If your date range has has dates when daylight saving is turned on or off then time component changes while you increment date using calendar API, e.g 24:00 in your code may change to 23:00 or 01:00.

hi,

i had almost the same problem and solved it quite comfortably with the joda-time framework. just google for it, it's a sourceforge project. these guys did a great job, specially when it comes to daylight saving time and leap-years...

hope it helps,

greetings from world-cup crazy berlin,
jan
