Dealing With Dates in Java

Many developers sometimes face a problems when they dealing with dates. In java there are many types of dates as:

- java.util.Date
- java.sql.Date
- java.sql.Timestamp
- oracle.jbo.domain.Date
- oracle.jbo.domain.Timestamp

ADF developers sometimes need to:

- Get current date (oracle.jbo.domain.Date or  oracle.jbo.domain.Timestamp) to set attribute in ViewObject programmatically .

- Convert between dates types.

- Add/Subtract some days from date.

- Display current date on the screen (as string) in specific format.

- Display name of current day in this week (Saturday - Sunday - ...... - Friday).

- Get current time.

- Get current day.

- Get current month.

- Get current year.

- Compare between two dates.

- Get the number of days difference between two dates.

All these previous functions developers need to know so, I made a set of functions to help developers to deal with dates.

  /** function return current date time in format (dd / MM / yyyy - HH:mm:ss) */
  public static String getDisplayedDateTime()
  {
    Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
    String dateFormat = "dd / MM / yyyy - HH:mm:ss";
    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(dateFormat);
    return sdf.format(cal.getTime());
  }

  /** function return current date or time depending on the format which you are want. Just send a format and the function will return the current date or time depending on the 
      format which you are sent (e.g. getDisplayedDateFormat("yyyy-mm-dd") it will return 2013-11-18 */
  public static String getDisplayedDateFormat(String dateFormat)
  {
    Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(dateFormat);
    return sdf.format(cal.getTime());
  }

  /** function return the index of current day in this week (if today is Sunday it will retun 1 and if the today is Monday this function will return 2 and so on... 
      till Saturday it will return 7) */
  public static int getCurrentDayOfWeek()
  {
    Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
    return cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
  }

  /** function return the name of current day in this week (Saturday - Sunday - ...... - Friday) */
  public static String getCurrentDayOfWeekName()
  {

    if(numberOfDay == 7)
