Date in XSLT mapping

Hi Folks,

I am trying to implement current date in XSLT mapping. Also my criteria is to add additional number of days to the date.

I currently Have the following which gives me the current date, Please let me know how can I modify it to add say 60 days to it, eg., if the current date is 20140916, it should give 20141115

<EXXXX><xsl:value-of select="java:format(java:java.text.SimpleDateFormat.new('yyyyMMdd'), java:java.util.Date.new())" /></EXXXX>

David Johnson, CD, MVPOwnerCommented:
you're also using java
most languages allow you to add days
<EXXXX><xsl:value-of select="java:format(java:java.text.SimpleDateFormat.new('yyyyMMdd'),
ava:java.util.Date.new(),60)" /></EXXXX>

Hi David,

Its not working, I don't think its allowing days like this. It throws an exception, and sorry I dont have any proper tool to catch exception as I am using a middleware tool which just says style sheet throws exception

Not exacly my expertise but there is a small typo in David's example:

<EXXXX><xsl:value-of select="java:format(java:java.text.SimpleDateFormat.new('yyyyMMdd'),
java:java.util.Date.new(),60)" /></EXXXX>

(missing j at beginning of 2nd line)

Gerwin,

It's not J, I have it right in my code. I think it's the addition of days at the end as one parameter is what is the problem

I am trying to use a java extension in XSLT as it looks like its not that simple in XSLT 1.0. But I am getting some syntax errors which I am not able to solve, could anyone help me out here.
For
c.setTime(new Date()); //todays date.

I am getting the following error
Syntax error on token "setTime", = expected after
       this token

Also I am getting the following error
Syntax error on token "(", < expected

for
c.add(Calendar.DATE, 90); // Adding 90 days


I am trying the following code

import java.sql.Timestamp;
import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.*;

public class DateAdd {
      
      
      SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
      Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
      c.setTime(new Date()); //todays date.
      c.add(Calendar.DATE, 90); // Adding 90 days
      String output = sdf.format(c.getTime());
      System.out.println(output);

Please ignore my previous message, It was supposed to be in main method.

I got the code working as below

package com.dateAdd;


import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.*;

public class DateAdd {
      
      public static String getDateadon(){
      //public static void main(String[] args){
            SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");
            Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
            c.setTime(new Date()); // Now use today date.
            c.add(Calendar.DATE, 90); // Adding 90 days
            String output = sdf.format(c.getTime());
            return output;
            //System.out.println(output);      
      }
}
