Working with java.util.Date and java.util.Calendar.

Java Date Examples

Few examples to work with Date APIs.

  1. Convert Date to String.
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/M/yyyy");
    	String date = sdf.format(new Date()); 
    	System.out.println(date); //15/10/2013
  2. Convert String to Date.
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-M-yyyy hh:mm:ss");
    	String dateInString = "31-08-1982 10:20:56";
    	Date date = sdf.parse(dateInString);
    	System.out.println(date); //Tue Aug 31 10:20:56 SGT 1982
  3. Get current date time
    	SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss");
    	Date date = new Date();
    	System.out.println(dateFormat.format(date)); //2013/10/15 16:16:39
  4. Convert Calendar to Date
    	Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
            Date date =  calendar.getTime();

Java Calendar Examples

Few examples to work with Calendar APIs.

  1. Get current date time
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy MMM dd HH:mm:ss");	
    	Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(2013,0,31);
    	System.out.println(sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
     
    Output 2013 Jan 31 00:00:00
  2. Simple Calendar example
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy MMM dd HH:mm:ss");	
    	Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(2013,1,28,13,24,56);
    
    	int year       = calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR);
    	int month      = calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH); // Jan = 0, dec = 11
    	int dayOfMonth = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH); 
    	int dayOfWeek  = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
    	int weekOfYear = calendar.get(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR);
    	int weekOfMonth= calendar.get(Calendar.WEEK_OF_MONTH);
    
    	int hour       = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR);        // 12 hour clock
    	int hourOfDay  = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY); // 24 hour clock
    	int minute     = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
    	int second     = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);
    	int millisecond= calendar.get(Calendar.MILLISECOND);
    		
    	System.out.println(sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
    		
    	System.out.println("year 		: " + year);
    	System.out.println("month 		: " + month);
    	System.out.println("dayOfMonth 	: " + dayOfMonth);
    	System.out.println("dayOfWeek 	: " + dayOfWeek);
    	System.out.println("weekOfYear 	: " + weekOfYear);
    	System.out.println("weekOfMonth 	: " + weekOfMonth);
    		
    	System.out.println("hour 		: " + hour);
    	System.out.println("hourOfDay 	: " + hourOfDay);
    	System.out.println("minute 		: " + minute);
    	System.out.println("second 		: " + second);
    	System.out.println("millisecond 	: " + millisecond);
     
    Output 2013 Feb 28 13:24:56 year : 2013 month : 1 dayOfMonth : 28 dayOfWeek : 5 weekOfYear : 9 weekOfMonth : 5 hour : 1 hourOfDay : 13 minute : 24 second : 56 millisecond : 0
  3. Set a date manually.
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy MMM dd HH:mm:ss");	
    		
    	Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(2013,1,28,13,24,56);	
    	System.out.println("#1. " + sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
    
    	//update a date
    	calendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, 2014);
    	calendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, 11);
    	calendar.set(Calendar.MINUTE, 33);
    		
    	System.out.println("#2. " + sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
     
    Output #1. 2013 Feb 28 13:24:56 #2. 2014 Dec 28 13:33:56
  4. Add or subtract from a date.
    	SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy MMM dd");	
    		
    	Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(2013,10,28);	
    	System.out.println("Date : " + sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
    
    	//add one month
    	calendar.add(Calendar.MONTH, 1);
    	System.out.println("Date : " + sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
    		
    	//subtract 10 days
    	calendar.add(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, -10);
    	System.out.println("Date : " + sdf.format(calendar.getTime()));
     
    Output Date : 2013 Nov 28 Date : 2013 Dec 28 Date : 2013 Dec 18
  5. Convert Date to Calendar.
            SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-M-yyyy hh:mm:ss");
    	String dateInString = "22-01-2015 10:20:56";
    	Date date = sdf.parse(dateInString);
    
            Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
    	calendar.setTime(date);
