Hello all

anyone know of a easy way to work with this date senario:
I have the year in the format of 2004. (any year,including leap years)
i have the day in the format of 111. (any date 1-366)

I need to find out what day this is? (ie 2004, 27 would give me January 27 2004)
thanks

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
    Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
    c.set(Calendar.YEAR, 2004);
    c.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, 27);
    System.out.println(sdf.format(c.getTime()));

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Assuming you've got Strings as input (remove Integer.parseInt if not) this will give you your required format:


   SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM dd yyyy");
   Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
   c.set(Calendar.YEAR, Integer.parseInt("2004"));
   c.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR, Integer.parseInt("111"));
   System.out.println(sdf.format(c.getTime()));

You can't do that 91mustang - it's against the rules. If you want you can ask CS to reopen this one.
