System Time & Date Stamp

Posted on 2006-11-02

Hi all,

I must be missing something around getting the system time.  I'd like to capture the system date and time during a process.

I keep getting "cannot resolve symbol" during compilation on both DateFormat and SimpleDateFormat.


I'm importing java.util.*  But cannot figure why the compiler isn't liking this.


Halp!


Thanks

they are in the java.text package so u need
import java.text.*;
easiest way to resolve these sort of probems is to cherck the javadoc
