Hi
I use the Calendar class as all familiar Date Constructor/methods are deprecated.

This backs up the calendar one day.
The Java 2 API docs are pretty good in showing how to use this class.
Hope this helped.

import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Calendar;
public class Prev
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Calendar xx = Calendar.getInstance();
Date dt = null;
xx.add(Calendar.DATE,-1);
dt = xx.getTime();
System.out.println("Yesterday Is : " + dt.getDate());
}
}
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
