I got 3 strings..

one is "date", second is "hours" and the third is "minutes". so for example,

String date = "Tu, 28.09.2004";
String hours = "09";
String minutes = "30";

now i want to convert this into a single DATE format. Like:

Date myDate = Tu, 28.09.2004 09:30;

thanks

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EE, dd.MM.yyyyhhmm");
String tmp = date + hours + minutes;
Date myDate = sdf.parse(tmp);

You probably need to catch a ParseException:

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EE, dd.MM.yyyyhhmm");
String tmp = date + hours + minutes;
Date myDate = null;
try {
    myDate = sdf.parse(tmp);
} catch (ParseException ex) {
}

Small correction if the hours are expressed in 0-23 format then replace

      SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EE, dd.MM.yyyyhhmm");
by
      SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EE, dd.MM.yyyyHHmm");  // HH instead of hh

So, to conclude:

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EE, dd.MM.yyyyHHmm");
String tmp = date + hours + minutes;
Date myDate = null;
try {
    myDate = sdf.parse(tmp);
} catch (ParseException ex) {
}
