System Time & Date Stamp

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is it possible for you to take a quick stab at a few ideas before I post some code?

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.text.DateFormat;
