    Well, it would help if you told us more about your situation... Like whether you're talking about the Date class or something else.

    Does the equals method do what you need? If not, you could use the getTime method and compare the resulting numbers.

    Thanks for the reply..
    I want to compare the dates in the followin format :
    compareDate(todayDate,selectedDate)

    todayDate is the Current Date.
    Selected date is Date selected fromt the Calendar.
    Now the difference between the two dates could not be greter than 6 months.
    That is the
    Date d = todyaDate - selectedDate (Let for an example).
    d should not be greater than 6 months.
    Please Reply.

    Hi rajan,

    I don't know about the LWUIT . But normally you can do like if you have current date in millis and past date in millis

    You an do like :

    long currentDateMilliSec = curent time
    long selecteddate= selected date
    long diffDays = (currentDateMilliSec - selecteddate) / (24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);
    With this you will get the number of days now you can check the difference.

    Hey Rajan hope this is not late, however with dates you can us dateObject.getTime() to get the number of milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT represented by this Date object.


    Then you use those seconds for comparison

    example
    long timeDiff = selectedDate.getTime() - todyaDate.getTime() ;

    Then u can compute whatever you want using the timeDiff variable which is in milliseconds.

    Yes, it possible either extend the LWUIT Canlendar component or create your own extending LWUIT form.
