I have a JSpinner that uses SpinnerDateModel and I need to get the selected day, month and year. SpinnerDateModel has a method getDate() which returns a Date object and Date has methods getDay(), getMonth() and getYear(). The problem is that those methods are deprecated.
The API says for Date.getDay(): "Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by Calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK)."
I can't find a way to convert Date to Calendar or to GregorianCalendar. Does anyone know how I can get the values without using deprecated methods?

I solved it by using SimpleDateFormat.format(Date date). It returns a String which is enough for me.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
