I never knew this existed, but I’m glad it does-
If you want to compare the date part of a Date (disregarding the time) use Apache commons DateUtil. It’s got a lot of other great utilities like adding parts to days and getting an iterator that will cycle through days, months, hours etc, returning a Calendar object corresponding to each segment.

I love Gmail. Love search and threaded conversations. However, the calendar is rough. My biggest pet peeve – silent events. When people invited me, I wouldn’t see an email and I wouldn’t get notifications at all. It’s pretty ridiculous. I was missing meetings left and right.
Luckily there’s an easy solution. Go to your calendar and click the arrow, then choose “Notifications”. There, you can set a bunch of nice notifications – multiple reminders, daily agenda emails, and emails when events come in, get canceled, etc.
Phew! I can use the Calendar happily now!
