If programming in JAVA is  your daily bread, you probably heard already about the Joda Time library http://joda-time.sourceforge.net/  ... the huge lib for handling Dates, Times and all around. If you rather prefer something decent but still more powerful than JAVA standard Date() object, you can use JODD library and its JDateTime extension. I have blogged about the goodness of JODD java library a few times already. You can find my previous blog posts on this library here:

How to grab HTML page and parse content to dig infomation you need ... in your xPages application ... in serverside using ’JQuery way’
Sending HTML emails wth images and attachments from your xPages application - JAVA way
Need to convert images (stored as an attachments on Lotus Notes documents) into text to be serializable via JSON ?

Now back to dates :-) JDateTime can help you to manipulate Dates with very nice and understandable API ... just look at the examples below or navigate to the library documentation directly http://jodd.org/doc/jdatetime.html

JDateTime library can even parse the date from many string formats. It can become very helpful in many situations ...
