How are the static fields of DateFormat (inherited by SimpleDateFormat)such as DAY_OF_YEAR intended to be used (example please)? Could I use it to build a Julian date ?
Thank you.

DAY_OF_YEAR_FIELD, etc., can be used to return the position at which a data field was formatted. DAY_OF_YEAR_FIELD is SimpleDateFormat's %D, which is not very common. For YEAR_FIELD:It doesn't look like this will help with Julian dates.
