You'll need to format it during output as well, something like

System.out.println(myDateFormat.format(myTime));

hi that is not working.
Because the return type of format() is string ,but i want the return type to be Date object.So to convert the string to Date if i use parse then again the output is in hh:mm:ss format,but i wanted it to be in hh:mm format.

I'm a little confused. "Format" doesn't make sense for a Date object. Dates are only formatted when they become string representations of Dates. So the return type should be a String.

Perhaps what you want is to set the seconds of the date to zero? To do that, take a look at the Calendar class.
