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()));

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.
