try

System.currentTimeMillis();

which returns the current system time in Milliseconds.

Use the java.util.Date class

Date d = new Date();
String strDate = d.getHours() + ":" + d.getMinutes() + ":" + d.getSeconds();

The methods getHours() etc. are deprecated in JDK 1.3 you should use the Calendar class instead:

Calendar rightNow = Calendar.getInstance();
int hours = rightNow.get(Calendar.HOUR);
int mins = rightNow.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
int secs = rightNow.get(Calendar.SECOND);

Or:

  public String dateToString()
  {
    SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat( "dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss" ) ;
    java.util.Date d = new java.util.Date() ;
    try
    {
      return df.format( d ) ;
    }
    catch( Exception e )
    {
      return "oops" ;
    }
  }

Hai kgsoft_sys,

As Mr.TimYates said,


 public String dateToString()
 {
   SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat( "dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss" ) ;
   java.util.Date d = new java.util.Date() ;

// instead of the above line
// because it is deprecated.
// use the below line

   java.sql.Date d = new java.sql.Date(System.currentTimeMillis());

   try
   {
     return df.format( d ) ;
   }
   catch( Exception e )
   {
     return "oops" ;
   }
 }

'deprecated' in which JDK???
Unless it's been deprecated in 1.4, I think you'll find the empty ctor is fine.
