Hi All,

I am using below code snippet, but setTime() function is not setting up the time correctly.
currentDate = new Date();

Calendar startCal = Calendar.getInstance();
Calendar endCal = Calendar.getInstance();

startCal.setTime(currentDate);
startCal.add(Calendar.DATE,12);
endCal.setTime(currentDate);
endCal.add(Calendar.DATE,37);

I don't see anything wrong with that. What makes you think there is something incorrect happening?

Hi Paul,

If I am printing startCal and endCal values after incrementing, its giving me April 30 and may 24 respectively-

Date currentDate = new Date();

Calendar startCal = Calendar.getInstance();
Calendar endCal = Calendar.getInstance();

startCal.setTime(currentDate);
startCal.add(Calendar.DATE,12);
System.out.println(startCal);
endCal.setTime(currentDate);
endCal.add(Calendar.DATE,37);
System.out.println(endCal);

And what's wrong with that?

Before you answer, please spend a little time preparing an explanation of why you think there is a problem. Show us the inputs, the outputs, and tell us what you think the output should be and why. Also show us the actual outputs instead of your interpretation of the outputs.

Hi All,

First of all sorry for late reply

When I run the above code snippet, I got the output as-

java.util.GregorianCalendar[time=1306951576296,areFieldsSet=true,areAllFieldsSet=true,lenient=true,zone=sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="GMT+05:30",offset=19800000,dstSavings=0,useDaylight=false,transitions=0,lastRule=null],firstDayOfWeek=1,minimalDaysInFirstWeek=1,ERA=1,YEAR=2011,MONTH=5,WEEK_OF_YEAR=23,WEEK_OF_MONTH=1,DAY_OF_MONTH=1,DAY_OF_YEAR=152,DAY_OF_WEEK=4,DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH=1,AM_PM=1,HOUR=11,HOUR_OF_DAY=23,MINUTE=36,SECOND=16,MILLISECOND=296,ZONE_OFFSET=19800000,DST_OFFSET=0]

java.util.GregorianCalendar[time=1309111576296,areFieldsSet=true,areAllFieldsSet=true,lenient=true,zone=sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="GMT+05:30",offset=19800000,dstSavings=0,useDaylight=false,transitions=0,lastRule=null],firstDayOfWeek=1,minimalDaysInFirstWeek=1,ERA=1,YEAR=2011,MONTH=5,WEEK_OF_YEAR=27,WEEK_OF_MONTH=5,DAY_OF_MONTH=26,DAY_OF_YEAR=177,DAY_OF_WEEK=1,DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH=4,AM_PM=1,HOUR=11,HOUR_OF_DAY=23,MINUTE=36,SECOND=16,MILLISECOND=296,ZONE_OFFSET=19800000,DST_OFFSET=0

If I look inside this output it gives me Day of the month=1, month=5
and Day of the month=26, month=5 respectively

which does not fit according to today's date i.e may 20th.
How come its correct??

should not it give 1 June and 26 June respectively considering today's date as 20 May??

It does give June 1 and June 26. Month numbers in the Calendar class run from 0 to 11.
