I have a method which returns a Date object.
I have to get this date object, get the corresponding month.
How to do this.
Date's class getMonth() method is depricated. The document says use Calender class. But using date object, how do I use Calender class? Please help!

Here's some sample code, note that the month returned is zero-based.

If you are using the current date in your program,
calendar.get (Calendar.MONTH) works if u have initialized calendar object.Else use the Date from the method which returns the date.In your other method to calculate the month,get the date object and first use String tokenizer and get the two digits of the month,then in your month method use comparisions for the digits to months and return the month to your main class and print it.I think that should help you.
