Subject Re: [OT] The Way Java Handles Date
Date Fri, 02 Apr 2004 22:06:08 GMT
I had a glance at the tutorials you mentioned; I had seen those topics
before and used them.

What I meant when I said that I hadn't seen tutorials on dates was that I
hadn't seen any on the topics of *manipulating* dates, e.g. using Dates and
Calendars to obtain or set specific dates. I found the coverage of that
material a bit lacking at the time; it's probably better now though since
the Tutorial has matured considerably since I first started messing with
Java.
