The class Date represents a specific instant in time, with millisecond precision.
Prior to JDK 1.1, the class Date had two additional functions. It allowed the interpretation of dates as year, month, day, hour, minute, and second values. It also allowed the formatting and parsing of date strings. Unfortunately, the API for these functions was not amenable to internationalization. As of JDK 1.1, the Calendar class should be used to convert between dates and time fields and the DateFormat class should be used to format and parse date strings. The corresponding methods in Date are deprecated.

You're welcome and great.
is this name suitable - "andrew"??
No. As stated in The JavaRanch Naming Policy, we request that your display name have three parts - a first name or initial, a space, and a last name.
