I can't catch your question exactly.
To check if two dates are identical, you can use compareTo(Date other) method and see if it returns 0.
You can get difference (miliseconds) between date1 and date2 from date1.getTime()-date2.getTime().

If you need the difference in days, please use the Search optionality. I've given answers to that same question in at least 3 different threads.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
