OK, so what have you tried?

I'm afraid we're not in the business of simply handing out answers here; but my advice would be to start by reading up on the SimpleDateFormat class.

Second piece of advice: Don't write a single line of Java code until you fully understand what you need to do.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Actually what you want to do is to convert a Gregorian Date to a Year plus day of year.

A Julian Day is really a count of days from January 1 4713 BCE.

The Julian Day Number (JDN) is the integer assigned to a whole solar day in the Julian day count starting from noon Greenwich Mean Time, with Julian day number 0 assigned to the day starting at noon on January 1, 4713 BC proleptic Julian calendar. (November 24, 4714 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.) For example, the Julian day number for 1 January 2000 was 2,451,545.

You may also want to look at JodaTime which has support for the Julian calendar
