Code to retrieve current Date and Time in android

18 Jun

In Java, you can get the current date time via following two classes – Date and Calender. And, later use SimpleDateFormate class to convert the date into user friendly format.

package com.nikshit;
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Calendar;

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

DateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat(“yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss”);
//get current date time with Date()
Date date = new Date();

//get current date time with Calendar()
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
