Pretty straightforward request. What have you done so far?

Any particular reason why? It sounds like the computer equivalent of 'mixing metaphors' to me.

And anyway, what is a 'date' in your mini-verse? Local? GMT? Does it start at midnight? Midday? 8AM? Does it use Daylight savings?

Lots of questions to answer before we can suggest a solution.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
