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());

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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);
