long Numeric Overflow

I need to convert a large amount of seconds to milliseconds but when I try to compile my program with ...

long lDiff = 2207520000 * 1000;

I get a Numeric Overflow error.

I am using the same line of code for a larger number and have no problem (the number is growing but is around 3,700,000,000 now.

Any Ideas on how I can get this to work? or what I am doing wrong?

I can't exactly reproduce it on my system. However, I'm pretty sure that your compiler thinks that one or other or the result is an integer. If you append a capital L (to indicate it is a long constant), all should be well.

For a newbie I would have to say the JDK is a little picky ;)
