date manipulation  [ 626 views ]

Goal: sometimes we need to modify a date…

Like in this simple case. Let’s add 5 minutes to the actual time. Easy with the java.util.Calendar class.

  Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
  cal.add(Calendar.MINUTE, 5);
  System.out.println("The modified Date Time : " + cal.getTime());

Nota bene: this class can use years, hours, minutes… as well
