Hi!

If you want, you can get time in 24hr format by calling cal.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY)...as far as AM or PM is concerned...you can use cal.get(Calendar.AM_PM), it will return 0 if the time is AM and 1 if it is PM

int i= cale.get(Calendar.AM_PM);
if it returns 0 means AM
if it returns 1 means PM

Actually it returns Calendar.AM and Calendar.PM. Those happen to be 0 and 1 respectively, but you should really compare them against these constants. Just like you need to compare weekdays against Calendar.SUNDAY until Calendar.SATURDAY, and months against Calendar.JANUARY until Calendar.DECEMBER. The latter is especially important because months are 0-based - month 1 is not January but February.
