I'm trying to compare two datetime values and get the difference between them in seconds. I can't find anything about it on the sun site.

You can use the Date's getTime() function to return the two dates as milliseconds and then divide by 1000 to get seconds.
Date dt1 = new Date();
Date dt2 = new Date();
long l1 = dt1.getTime();
long l2 = dt2.getTime();
long dttmDiffInSecs = (l2 - l1) / 1000;
