Hi,

I have a requirement where i have a date like "2006-08-21 09:53:58.0", so i need to get the last date of the next year like "2007-12-31 09:53:58.0".

Does Java API provide any method where if i give the date like "2006-08-21 09:53:58.0" and output i get "2007-12-31 09:53:58.0".

Can anyone please mail me the code.

Thanks inadvance for all the help.

Check out the java.util.Calendar class.

I think I would use a GregorianCalendar to construct a date:

GregorianCalendar(int year, int month, int date, int hour, int minute, int second) Constructs a GregorianCalendar with the given date and time set for the default time zone with the default locale.

Then use the set() function of the Calendar class

set(int year, int month, int date)
Sets the values for the fields year, month, and date.

To set the new year, month and day values.
