In Java, is there a way I can get the "date" value of NEXT Monday 9AM ?

For example, if now is Tuesday I want next Monday's 9Am DATE, if now is Monday 9:05AM I still want next Monday's 9AM DATE; if now is 8:55AM MOnday, then it should give me today's 9AM.

I don't see such API. Any help will be appreciated.

There isn't any API that has that exact method built into it. But you could certainly use java.util.Calendar to do the calculation.

For most date/time calculations, java.util.Calendar is your friend.

The last two lines show you how to get a Date object or String from the Calendar.
