Hi,

   My requirement is to generate unique sequence number with the following format

  i.e. yydddsssssmmmm

       yy = year
       ddd = julian date
       sssss = current seconds
       mmmm = milliseconds

I am able to do first 2 things. How about the rest.
I appreciate your ideas!!!

Thanks

what do you mean with "current seconds"? (and it can be 5 digits long????)
You don't mean the seconds part of the current time, do you?

Guess you mean yydddssmmm.

Then you become the last part by

SimpleDateFormat fmt = new SimpleDateFormat("ssSSS");
String lastPart = fmt.format( new Date() );

>>sssss - Seconds past midnight (0 - 86399).
That's maths: sssss = hours * 3600 + minutes * 60 + seconds

>>mmmm - milli seconds past the second
Think you mean
      mmm - milli seconds past the second (0-999)

That's:
SimpleDateFormat fmt = new SimpleDateFormat("SSS");
String millis = fmt.format( new Date() );

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
int hours = cal.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
int minutes = cal.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
int seconds = cal.get(Calendar.SECOND);

I mean without loosing nanos precision.
We can use set(int year, int month, int date, int hour, int minute, int second)  method of Calendar.
But i loose nono second precision.

Try the following
  TimeStamp t;
  ...Get the data from DB...
  Calendar dt=Calandar.getInstance();
  dt.setDate(t);

  SimpleDateFormat fmt = new SimpleDateFormat("ssSSS");
  String lastPart = fmt.format(dt.getTime());
  lastPart=lastPart+t.getNanos();
