Hi,
I have a requirement in my project. When I login to my application I need to fetch today's date and the corresponding Saturday's date along with it.
For eg: If I login today i.e. 06-Dec-2004, I should get this week's Sat's date i.e. 11-Dec-2004, if I login on 29-Dec-2004, I should get 01-Jan-2005.

Can someone help.

I was able to fetch today's date, please see the code below
_________________________________________________________________________
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
Date d = new Date();
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat();
df.applyPattern("dd MMM yyyy");
String dateAsText = df.format(d);

I was able to acheive it in the following way :
__________________________________________________________________
String dateAsText = "";
GregorianCalendar gregCal = new GregorianCalendar();
Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar();
//integer value of Sat
int satOfWeek = Calendar.SATURDAY;
//integer value of the current day
int dayOfWeek = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
//find the date for sat
gregCal.add(GregorianCalendar.DATE,(satOfWeek - dayOfWeek) );
//date of the approaching saturday
Date time = gregCal.getTime();
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat();
//format in dd-MMM-yyyy
df.applyPattern("dd-MMM-yyyy");
dateAsText = df.format(time);
_______________________________________________________________________
Thank you,
Rebecca
