Hello Friends ,

Using java.io.File class with the method lastModified () retrieves the last modified file in long ie milliseconds since the epoch (00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970) I want the time to be like the listing files of a directory in windows environment like 7/21/2005 12:17 PM . I mean to say I want to retrieve the date and time with the lastModified method of a java.io.File class..

your early response is highly appreciated and i shall be very thankful to you .

bye
Mahesh .

To work with dates, you could use the Date class. Have you looked at the doc for Date? Then there are other classes for formatting dates for output.
Read your doc a bit. It's all there. And sometimes faster than waiting for someone else. Search sometimes will find you code.
