I came upon a strange behavior that has left me curious and without a satisfactory explanation as yet.
For simplicity, I've reduced the symptoms I've noticed to the following code:
String format = "yyyyMMdd";
SimpleDateFormat formatter = getSimpleDateFormat(format);
Date date = formatter.parse("07312011",new ParsePosition(0));
This gives "2500-01-01 00:00:00" on jdk1.4 which is incorrect and returns null on jdk1.5
Why does this give "2500-01-01 00:00:00" on jdk1.4?
What is really meant when using Java Date utilities and something has been deprecated. Does this mean that it is discouraged to use, or does it imply that it is forbidden?
I am try to get the current date/time in in following format,
SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy.MM.dd G 'at' HH:mm:ss z");
// should display something similar to 2001.07.04 AD at 12:08:56 ...
Either I'm missing something completely obvious or making unwarranted assumptions about the behavior of SimpleDateFormat.
I'd assume that it ought to be symmetric, right? If I have
Date d = formatter.parse(datestr);

Hi to all of you, Im happy for being here and learn to program in Java Im have a problem understanding the SimpleDateFormat and Date classes when applying them to a project from my school. I have to create a kind of password with the birthdate typed by the user in the format ddMMyyyy. Ive declared a Date birthDate to store ...
If you read the doc for matches, you'll find that it takes a String which is interpreted regex, not a SimpleDateFormat. If you study up on regex, you'll find that 'y', 'm', and 'd' are just characters and have no date-centric meaning. In fact you'll find that regex doesn't deal with Dates at all. So why not use SimpleDateFormat, which you ...
There might be a bug in this theory, according to a lot of people (including some enlighted ones like the Pope) 00/00/0000, should be 25/12/0001 b.C. (or the 24th, maybe, but never the 31st). Anyway I don't get how the OP can report such an output if he's just printing the date without applying the format the way round. Maybe it's ...
Read the comments in the API: [http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/text/DateFormat.html#parse(java.lang.String)|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/text/DateFormat.html#parse(java.lang.String)] You could try the other overload of parse, if you want to test whether the whole String was used: [http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/text/SimpleDateFormat.html#parse(java.lang.String, java.text.ParsePosition)|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/text/SimpleDateFormat.html#parse(java.lang.String,%20java.text.ParsePosition)] (Sorry--the second link doesn't go to the right place. There is a version of "parse" with two parameters, which you can use to determine if the whole String was used.)
Is there a way to exclude incorrect dates with a SimpleDateFormat? I mean, say for instance that you want to enter 31st of June, 2009. That should produce an error, because that date is not possible. However, for some reason, that date is converted to the 1st of July. What I can do is convert the text to a Date object, ...
