Hi,

quick hack  
<project name="bla" default="main" basedir=".">

   <target name="depends">

   <script language="ruby">
   <![CDATA[

       t = Time.now
       puts t.strftime("actual date == %m.%d.%Y")
       x=t.strftime("%w").to_i-1

       lastweek = (t - x * 86400).strftime("%m.%d.%Y")
       $project.setProperty "lastweek",  lastweek

       nextweek =  (t - x * 86400 + 7 * 86400).strftime("%m.%d.%Y")
       $project.setProperty "nextweek",  nextweek
       
   ]]>
   </script>    

   </target>

   <target name="main" depends="depends">

   <echo>
       starting Date last week == ${lastweek}
       starting Date next week == ${nextweek}
   </echo>

   </target>
</project>


Buildfile: C:\WKS\eclipse_3_2_2\test\jruby_time.xml
depends:
  [script] actual date == 04.27.2007
main:
    [echo] starting Date last week == 04.23.2007
    [echo] starting Date next week == 04.30.2007
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 2 seconds


the example uses Monday as starting point, if you want
Sunday instead you have to change the line

x=t.strftime("%w").to_i-1

to

x=t.strftime("%w").to_i

for having the date properties in other formats, you
have to alter the strftime("%m.%d.%Y") string, see

http://www.ruby.ch/ProgrammingRuby/htmlC/ref_c_time.html#strftime
