Hi all, Is there any way to get the systems time through a java program ? I tried using the getProperties option but it just gives informations related to Zone ... I need to get the Systems time during which a program of mine is running ... thanks kavya
Hi Kayva, You can get the current system time using <code>java.util.Date();</code> Hope that helps. ------------------ Jane Griscti Sun Certified Java 2 Programmer "When ideas fail, words come in very handy" -- Goethe
I think it's best to use System class for this and get the time from the System. Using System.currentTimeMillis()

Jane , val Thanks alot for your responces ... I'd already tried both of these options ... I need to get the timing info in the actual format ( not just milliseconds) ... I tried the toString method but it does not seem to work ... is there any particular method which prints the time/date in the actual format ??? thanks kavya

Use SimpleDateFormat class to format the date to look how you like.
