This is the simplest code to do so
Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar();
Date date = calendar.getTime();
DateFormat df=new SimpleDateFormat("dd':'MM':'yy");
//MM must be in caps else it will give the minutes
System.out.println("date is"+df.format(date))

Thanks Anamica , I did find a solution by using StringTokenizer and tokenizing the System date.
