Hi All,
Thanks a lot in advance.
I want to print date in some predefined format without using SimpleDateFormat class. Is it possible to complete in otherway.

Regards,
Sree

You can always do your own Date conversion coding - but I don't recoment it.

It will help us to avoid making unsuitable suggestions if you tell us why you don't want to use SimpleDateFormat.

The only reason I can imagine is an environment that does not have (Simple)DateFormat, like Java ME.

Of course why not. Just read the desired date fragments (hour, day, month etc.) and place them in appropriate order using String concatenation.
