Hi Experts


I would like to find what will be the date for the current  year on March first - 5 days.

I would like to get this date as an int this format :  example 20070220.


How would I do that ?

Thank you

Calendar cal =  Calendar.getInstance();
cal.set(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.FEBRUARY);
cal.set(Calendar.MONTH, cal.getActualMaximum(Calendar.MONTH));
cal.add(Calendar.Date, -4);
// Now format the Date

DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyymmDD");
int date = Integer.parseInt(df.format(cal.getTime());

I think there is a mistake in the code.

I changed it for :

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
            cal.set(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.FEBRUARY);
            cal.set(Calendar.DATE,cal.getActualMaximum(Calendar.MONTH));
            cal.add(Calendar.DATE, -4);
            
            DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyymmDD");
            int date = Integer.parseInt(df.format(cal.getTime()));
            System.out.println(date);

But it still doesn't work

I found something that works for me.


Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
            cal.set(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.MARCH);
            cal.set(Calendar.DATE, 01);
            cal.add(Calendar.DATE, -5);
            
            Date myDate = cal.getTime();
            DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
            int marchdate = Integer.parseInt(df.format(myDate));
            System.out.println(marchdate);
