    Exclamation using dates in java

    hi there,
    i require to ask the user to enter the date in the format dd/mm/yyyy.
    then the program should add 3 days with date provided by the user, and the result is output in the screen. I researched a bit, and i discovered something about a DATE CLASS .. however i tried to avoid using it.. and went to finding another alternative.. i tried to use simple data types...and used intgers as dd , mm and yyyy... however when having day 31 it does not make sense to add 3 to 31 having day 34 lool ... anyway... i need some help to sort this problem out... one thing is.. that i'm using this in a method.. so please guide me on what to insert the method header... not a problem to use the date class... i tried to avoid it just because i thought it was complicated... please keep things simple i;m a very beginner thanks so much!!! appreciate any help!

    You should also look at the SimpleDateFormat class which allows you to convert from a Date to a String and back again.
