I think this works, but only tested on current day, so you may want to verify other dates. Calendar and Date don't seem to have a getLastDayOfMonth() or similar, so I coded some stuff. Not really sure if this is the best solution, but it seems to work.

Hi,
got the answer an easier way thanks
ie try to find the length of 'month'
cal.setTime(new Date(year,month+1,day));
cal.add(Calendar.DATE,-1);
cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
wish there was a more direct way to do it, maybe should say something to the lads at Sun
Thanks
Damien
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
