Time Stamp for an external file

Is there a way that I can get a timestamp from a given file at a specified path. For example, how can I get a time stamp from
C:\myRoot\myTextFile.txt
and have it print out
04/11/2001 01:00:00
or something close so that we know its a time and date.

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
public class test {
public static void main (String args []) {
File f = new File ("C:\\Autoexec.bat");
System.out.println(f.lastModified());
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
c.setTime(new Date(f.lastModified()));
String szTime = "Last Modified on " + c.get(Calendar.MONTH) + "/" + c.get(Calendar.DATE) + "/" + c.get(Calendar.YEAR) +
" At " + c.get(Calendar.HOUR) + ":" + c.get(Calendar.MINUTE) + ":" + c.get(Calendar.SECOND) + ":" + c.get(Calendar.MILLISECOND) + c.get(Calendar.AM_PM);
System.out.println (szTime);
}
}
