Hi, How can I check if a certain date occurs before another:
string date1 = "22-12-01";
string date2 = "22-12-02";
if(date1 < date2) //date1 occurs before date2
{
/////
}

Date d1 = sdf.parse(date1);
Date d2 = sdf.parse(date2);

Thanks for your comments.
>>boolean earlier = if d1.before(d2);
if(earlier == true)
{
}

Will this work?

Yes (if you apply my correction ;-)) Or simpler:

if (earlier) {
   // do it
}
