Following is a simple date format example made using Format class. We have uses a pattern of special characters to date and time format.

In this example, SimpleDateFormat:class is used to format date into text and parse text into date and normalization.

format() method is used to format Date class object into date/time and appends it into the StringBuffer.

We have shown different formats of date that are defined under SimpleDateFormat class constructor. A programmer can define or choose his/her own type of format and pattern.

Here is a simple Date Format Example:

import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;

public class DateFormat {
  public static void main(String args[]) {

  String s;
  Format formatter;
  Date date = new Date();

  // 01/09/02
  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yy");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);

  // 01/09/02
  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yy");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);

  // 29-Jan-02
  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yy");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);

  // 2002.01.29.08.36.33
  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy.MM.dd.HH.mm.ss");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);

  // Tue, 09 Jan 2002 22:14:02 -0500
  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("E, dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss Z");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);

  formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("EEEE, dd MMMM yyyy HH:mm:ss zzzz");
  s = formatter.format(date);
  System.out.println(s);
  }
}

Output:

10/11/08
11/10/08
11-Oct-08
2008.10.11.12.08.24
Sat, 11 Oct 2008 12:08:24 +0530
