Subject Re: Date Comparison Function
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 13:30:03 GMT
Hi John,

I don't remember if we have something similar in OFBiz, but if not I 
think it is a good idea to include it; maybe I'd prefer to include the 
commons validator jar (and also the commons math jar 
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/math/ would be interesting for reports 
etc... but this is anoether subject).

In the meantime, thanks for your ideas and research,
