Hi guys
Is there a way in java to see what time of the day my program runs
For example my java program runs at 12Am, 7am, 6pm monday to saturday
through autosys scheduling tool.
So I need to have something like
If(java program is running at 12am){
// do something
}else if(java program is running at 7am){
//Do something else
}

What would be the best way to do this?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 Thanks.

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance() ;

int hours = cal.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY) ;

if (hours > 6 and hours < 8) {
   // It's the 7am run
}

etc.

Yes - that would be the test for midnight (within an hour).
