How can I convert a time value returned by SQL (in a 10 digit format) by hand?

Thanks.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

The first thing is to figure out what the number means for your database. Is it milliseconds since January 1st, 1970 or something else.

At that point, I would write a program to load the number into a java.util.Date object and output it. (You could do this with a calculator if you had to, but I can't imagine why you want to do that. Accounting for leap years and the like would be a nuisance.)

If you were using JDBC to get the SQL TIME, you could call rs.getTimeStamp and output that directly.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
