I have a Date object.
I want to print the date like this:
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
c.setTime(shipDate1); //shipDate is my Date Objecy
date = String.valueOf(c.get(Calendar.YEAR)) + String.valueOf(c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)) +
The 0's from the day and month keep getting trimmed. There has to be a clean way to do this.
