Hi Experts,

I was trying a program to convert the miliseconds we get after from date object (Post Jan 1970) to date object again. Here what I was trying and I am getting interger number too large error. I am using long datatype though. Please advice.

This is the out put:
C:\jdk1.5.0_17\bin>javac integer number too large: 1222402191823
long yourmilliseconds = 1222402191823;
1 error

I got this fixed. It shud be Long yourmilliseconds = 1222402191823L;

This is what happens when you are not in touch with programing for 3 years

This issue doesn't seem to be about the SCJP exam. I will move it to a more appropriate forum for you.

It should probably not be Long but long. And I see you remembered the L after the number.
I agree. Here's the link:
