hi amit,
try
java.util.Calendar;
Calendar defines lots of constants to get
the different components of time(year/month etc)
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();;
c.setTime(long milliseconds);
then u can do a
c.get(Calendar.YEAR)..and so on.
hope it helps.

Or look up java.text.SimpleDateFormat which allows you to format the input and output of dates and times in almost any way you like.
