Hi all..
I have two Date objects and need to find out the amount of time between them. Any ideas?

Use the getTime() method of Date to get 'long' representations of your dates (which is the number of milliseconds since the Jan. 1, 1970).
Then get the difference of these two numbers. This will be the number of milliseconds difference between your two dates. Divide the result by 1000, and you have the number of seconds between your dates....and so forth.
Hope this helps!
