Hi,
I don't think there is any direct method to get the difference between timestamp. You'll have to formulate using GregorianCalendar.

One more solution....
U can use the class called Timestamp which extends Date class. Date class has methods of comparing two objects.
Hope, this helps u.

The difference as what? The simplest way is to use getTime() to get the timestamps in milliseconds since 1970, which is a long. You can simply subtract the two values to get the difference in milliseconds.
That may or may not be useful to you.
