Hello Friends ,

Using class with the method lastModified () retrieves the last modified file in long ie milliseconds since the epoch (00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970) I want the time to be like the listing files of a directory in windows environment like 7/21/2005 12:17 PM . I mean to say I want to retrieve the date and time with the lastModified method of a class..

your early response is highly appreciated and i shall be very thankful to you .

Mahesh .
