Hi, i don't know if this can help u.
if the 2 dates are 2 columns in a database u want to extract and calculate the difference then my reply will help u.
i search in java a function that calculate the difference between 2 dates i didn't found, so i use the following query to access the database, extract the value of 2 dates and calculate the difference.
Dat = rset1.getDate("Date"); //value of first date
Dat1 = rset2.getDate("Date"); //value second date
stmt3.executeUpdate("Update tableName set Difference = abs(DateDiff('d', ' " + Dat + " ', ' " + Dat1 + " ' ))"); // executeQuery
Diferece is a column in the table that will contain the difference. DateDiff is the function that calculate the diff, 'd' specifie that the difference is day diff between the 2 dates.
hope that it will help.
