How do I get the current date in Java?
In C# it is
Just construct a new
Date object without any arguments; this will assign the current date and time to the new object.
import java.util.Date; Date d = new Date();
Allocates a Date object and initializes it so that it represents the time at which it was allocated, measured to the nearest millisecond.
Make sure you're using
java.util.Date and not
java.sql.Date -- the latter doesn't have a zero-arg constructor, and has somewhat different semantics that are the topic of an entirely different conversation. :)
