Script Runner: Compare 2 dates



I'm still beginner with script runner and I would like to find a way to compare the time between 2 date. I want to compare the time between my creation date and due date. My goal is to do statistic on time my users let me to resolve all issues.


if (issue.dueDate) { 
return issue.dueDate - issue.createdDate


I suppose my sample will not work like this. 


In Script Runner I use the function "Create a new Script Field"
