Formatting Time and Date

Java-Formatting Time and Date

Formatting Time and Date

The conversion specifier %t is used to format time and date information. The %t specifier works a bit differently than the others because it requires the use of a suffix to describe the portion and precise format of the time or date desired. For example, to display time, you would use %tT, where T indicates time in 24-hour clock as hh:mm:ss. The argument corresponding to the %t specifier must be of type Calendar, Date, Long or long. For example:
