    Default How do I do I calculate the difference between two entered days of the week in java

    I need to create a simple Java program that calculates the difference between two entered days of the week with the following requirements: Ask the user to enter in a day of the week by name (e.g. Monday)
    Ask the user to enter in another day of the week by name (e.g. Friday)
    Create a static method other than main that takes in two Strings as input, and returns an integer value equal to the difference between the two days
    Use an array with the days of the week in it to find each entered in day of the week, and use their indices to calculate the difference
    Output the difference for the user to see

    So what have you tried now?
    Is there something wrong with your code?
    If you have code paste it here and ask specific questions like "why it prints exception", or "why the output is wrong".
