Getting date by time

     

In this example of creating date using the timestamp value. We can pass the timestamp value as constructor parameter while creating the object of java.util.Date(). For creating or generating Date by the specific time we have used constructor Date(long date)

Date( long date ) initializes the date object with the specified time . 

 

 

Here is the example code of DateByTime.java as follows:

import java.util.Date;
public class DateByTime{

  public static void main(String[] args) {
   // Create a new instance of Date by the time in milliseconds
 Date newDate = new Date(360*24*60*60*2000);
 System.out.println("New Date:="+newDate);
   // getTime() method returns number of milliseconds 
 System.out.println("Number of milliseconds ==>"+newDate.getTime());
  }
}

To run this example follow these steps as follows:

  • Create and Save DateByTime.java and 
  • Compile it with javac command.
  • Execute it with java command

Output:

C:\DateExample>javac DateByTime.java

C:\DateExample>java DateByTime
New Date:=Sun Jan 25 06:50:57 GMT+05:30 1970
Number of milliseconds ==>2078457856
