Dear All,

I have a java.util.Date object, which I print it out
the default is (Thu May 30 20:18:46 HKT 2002). e.g.
Date d = new Date();
System.out.println(d)

how should I write the code, so that I can print
out (May 30)? i.e. the Month and the date only.

Very Urgent!

Thanks!

Hi,

Very easy. You need to create a class formatter = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM dd");
and then String myString = formatter.format(date);

where date is your Date object.

 A quick and "dirty" solution:

            java.util.Date date = new java.util.Date();
          DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.DEFAULT, DateFormat.DEFAULT, Locale.US);
          System.out.println(df.format(date).substring(0, df.format(date).indexOf(',')));

  Not the best though. Other experts might have a better recommendation.

  Hope it helps.

Oops,

it should be

SimpledDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM dd");

Hope this helps, Omer.

 omers comment is a better solution and does not involve string manipulation. I would go with it.
