Java Calendar: I want to remove specific Day of week from calendar

More details I want to get rid of specific days of week.

I mean like :{Sat(1), Sun(2), Mon(3) , Tues(4) , Wed (5),Thurs(6) ,Fri(7)}.

Remove Week Days :{Sat(1), Sun(2), Mon(3) , Tues(4) , Wed (5)}.

So I can get the Count of days without the excluded days from specific start date to date of now.

Hint: I must Use the Java Calendar

*****The problem is specifying the day dynamically

If tou can use LocalDate and stream you can apply functional approach.

LocalDate start = LocalDate.of(2015, 2, 1);
LocalDate end = LocalDate.of(2015, 2, 28);

List<DayOfWeek> includedDays = Arrays.asList(DayOfWeek.THURSDAY, DayOfWeek.FRIDAY);

long daysCount = Stream.iterate(start, date -> date.plusDays(1))
        .limit(ChronoUnit.DAYS.between(start, end))
        .filter(d -> includedDays.contains(d.getDayOfWeek()))

If you insist on calendar just use:

GregorianCalendar calendarStart = new GregorianCalendar(2015, 2, 1);
GregorianCalendar calendarEnd = new GregorianCalendar(2015, 2, 28);

List<Integer> includedDays = Arrays.asList(GregorianCalendar.THURSDAY, GregorianCalendar.FRIDAY);
long count = 0;
while(!calendarStart.equals(calendarEnd)) {
    if(includedDays.contains(calendarStart.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK))) {
        count ++;
    calendarStart.add(Calendar.DATE, 1);
