Yes. The java.util.Calendar class has everything you need for that.

If you had used a Calendar object for those calculations, it would have taken care of the case where the month changes. It isn't that hard to do, either... just about every line of code there can be replaced by a similar line acting on a Calendar object.

It may be good to read this if you're able to use Java 8. Catching up with the Java Date and Time API

+1 on using the Calendar class like I suggested. It would also take care of DST, which your code doesn't. Why did you try to reinvent the wheel?

While the previous posters are absolutely correct about using the Calendar class to do that for you, might I suggest instead of using the built-in Calendar class maybe take a look at a third party calendar library called Joda Time. I have personally found it more useful and easier to use than Calendar class for many situations.
