Hi there, welcome to Java ranch. This question probably belongs in the Beginners Forum (and if you search there you'll find many answers to this question) but regardless of that:

Look at the DateFormat class(es) in particular SimpleDateFormat, you'll quickly see what to use.

Hope that helps!

Yes that's right!!!

You can achieve this by using SimpleDateFormat class and pass whatever format you want in it's constructor
