Dealing with 'time'.

I'm working on an application where I want to give an object on creation, a time attribute so that i can later compare it's time of creation with the current time.

What's a good way to do this?

The Calendar class? though, getTimeInMillis() and setTimeInMillis()methods are protected so do I need a class of my own to extend Calendar before I can use these methods?
