1) DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
Date today = df.parse("20/12/2005");
System.out.println("Today = " + df.format(today));

2) today.getday
today.getHour ....etc

Please read what it says on the contents page for "beginning Java"
We're all here to learn, so when responding to others, please focus on helping them discover their own solutions, instead of simply providing answers.
Minni Sharma, please avoid giving straight answers to somebody like that. By so doing, you are depriving them of an opportunity to learn.

@pdayakar A quick glance to JavaDoc for SimpleDateFormat is definitely recommended.
