I need to calculate the number of days between 2 dates. I think I have confused myself beyond repair and I am seeking some advice. Below is a snip of my code. In a nutshell I am reading 2 string values, converting them to date and then I want to calculate the difference. any help would be appreciated..... String ds1 = a[x].getinvoice().substring(date_start, last_paren); String ds2 = a[x].getdate().trim();

It's really important to step back and think about the data types in this problem. It's a surprisingly common one. What is the conceptual data type of the difference between two dates? If you were making a class to hold the difference between two dates, what would you call it? Hint: it's not a Date.
