Date arithmetic is relatively easy if you remember that time in JavaScript is measured in milliseconds. Use the date method getTime() to determine the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the magic date of January 1, 1970. Use the setTime() method to establish a date you have calculated in term of milliseconds.

Danny Goodman, author of the JavaScript bible recommends that you set up some variables that build on each other to make it easier to do Date Arithmetic. Here is the variable setup that he recommends:

var oneMinute = 60 * 1000 // milliseconds in a minute
var oneHour = oneMinute * 60
var oneDay = oneHour * 24
var oneWeek = oneDay * 7

So for your case (date for 10 days after today), we can declare like this:

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">

var today = new Date();
var mm= today.getMonth();
var dd = today.getDate();
var yyyy = today.getFullYear();
var oneMinute = 60 * 1000; // milliseconds in a minute
var oneHour = oneMinute * 60;
var oneDay = oneHour * 24;
var dateInMS = today.getTime() + oneDay * 10;
var TargetDate = new Date (dateInMS)
document.write("Today is: " + mm + "/" + dd + "/" + yyyy);
document.write("<br />");
document.write("10 days after today is: " + TargetDate);

Somehow java was uninstalled from my pc, when i try to reinstall i get an error 2318

Are you actually using the Java Desktop, on a Solaris box, or did you see a note that something can't find the jdk or java?  In the latter case, just go to the former, I think maybe you ran short of the 5GB free space install baseline, but you can check Google and the Sun forums to get some better clues if your manuals seem dry of relevance.

Look into using the Process class to execute a command you might use on the command line (DATE in your case). Small tutorial that you can use to get you started is at:

You'll probably have to run this command with administrator privileges...not too familiar with Windows.

On a side note, if you use this approach, the example doesn't close any of the streams that were opened to read the output of the command issued. You should do this to avoid unwanted resource consumption.
