Ageing Calculated Field excluding weekends using JMCF

I need to create a field that would capture the ageing of a ticket but would exclude the weekends. Basically, the ageing should only consider work/business days.

you can create a calculated number field with the following formula:

<!-- @@Formula:
start = issue.get("created");
end = new Date();
Calendar c1 = Calendar.getInstance(); c1.setTime(start); int w1 = c1.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK); c1.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, -w1); Calendar c2 = Calendar.getInstance(); c2.setTime(end); int w2 = c2.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK); c2.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, -w2); //end Saturday to start Saturday long days = (c2.getTimeInMillis()-c1.getTimeInMillis())/(1000*60*60*24); long daysWithoutWeekendDays = days-(days*2/7); // Adjust days to add on (w2) and days to subtract (w1) so that Saturday // and Sunday are not included if (w1 == Calendar.SUNDAY && w2 != Calendar.SATURDAY) { w1 = Calendar.MONDAY; } else if (w1 == Calendar.SATURDAY && w2 != Calendar.SUNDAY) { w1 = Calendar.FRIDAY; } if (w2 == Calendar.SUNDAY) { w2 = Calendar.MONDAY; } else if (w2 == Calendar.SATURDAY) { w2 = Calendar.FRIDAY; } return daysWithoutWeekendDays-w1+w2; -->

Hope this helps,
