Post function to update due date to 14 days in the future

I am attempting to set the due to 14 days in the future.  I am attempting to run the following as a sriptrunner post function but am getting no output.  Can anyone see anything wrong with this script?


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import java.sql.Timestamp;
int days = 14;
Calendar dueDate = Calendar.getInstance();

while (days > 0) {
dueDate.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, 1)

/* Adjust for weekends > set to following Monday */
int dow = dueDate.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
if (dow == 7) {
dueDate.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, 2)
} else if (dow == 1) {
dueDate.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, 1)

issue.setDueDate(new Timestamp(dueDate.getTimeInMillis()));

Well, the code looks fine, I can't seem to spot something odd in this code.  One thing that comes to my mind, is the post-function right at the top i.e. it should be the first post-function, if it's not the case can you please move it to the first position.

That is the case.  IT also states that it is not failing.  I have tested with the field being blank.  I have also tested with due date being populated.  If it is populated, the value is cleared.

I had other post functions that were causing problems.  Working fine now.
