Use this

Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar();

// Get the components of the date
int era = cal.get(Calendar.ERA); // 0=BC, 1=AD
int year = cal.get(Calendar.YEAR); // 2002
int month = cal.get(Calendar.MONTH); // 0=Jan, 1=Feb, ...
int day = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH); // 1...
int dayOfWeek = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK); // 1=Sunday,2=Monday, ...

Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.
