How to subtract X days from a date using Java calendar?

Anyone know a simple way using Java calendar to subtract X days from a date?

I have not been able to find any function which allows me to directly subtract X days from a date in Java. Can someone point me to the right direction?


Taken from the docs here:

Adds or subtracts the specified amount of time to the given calendar field, based on the > calendar's rules. For example, to subtract 5 days from the current time of the calendar, > you can achieve it by calling:

Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(); // this would default to now
calendar.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, -5).
