    Subtracting x days from current date in JSP

    Hi - I'm new to JSP/Java and I need to be able to subtract x number of days from the current day (ie, display the full date 10 days ago today). Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance!

    ----------------------------------------

    import java.util.GregorianCalendar;
    import java.util.Calendar;


    public class TestDate {


    public TestDate() {
    }

    public void run()
    {
    GregorianCalendar gc = new GregorianCalendar();

    // Todays date

    System.out.println(gc.get(Calendar.DATE) + "/" +
    (gc.get(Calendar.MONTH)+ 1) + "/" +
    gc.get(Calendar.YEAR));

    // Two days ago

    gc.add(Calendar.DATE, -2);

    System.out.println(gc.get(Calendar.DATE) + "/" +
    (gc.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1) + "/" +
    gc.get(Calendar.YEAR));

    // take off another 30 Days

    gc.add(Calendar.DATE, -30);
    System.out.println(gc.get(Calendar.DATE) + "/" +
    (gc.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1) + "/" +
    gc.get(Calendar.YEAR));


    }
