In my code I have a date and a calendar object and I want to compare just the time portion. I'm thinking of doing something like this

public myfunc(Calendar cal1, Date date1)
{
   Calendar cal2 = (Calendar)cal1.clone();
   cal2.setTime(date1);
   if (cal2.after(cal1)
     <more code here...>
}

But I'm having trouble with the setTime() function since it also assigns the date info as well. So I need a setTime() that will only set the time.

create a new calendar and just set the time to be same as inputs

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.set(Calendar.HOUR, cal1.get(Calendar.HOUR));
// set minutes and seconds in same way
