Java Question

Set Date in a single line

According to the Java API, the constructor

Date(year, month, day)
is depreciated. I know that I can replace it with the following code:

Calendar myCal = Calendar.getInstance();
myCal.set(Calendar.YEAR, theYear);
myCal.set(Calendar.MONTH, theMonth);
myCal.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, theDay);
Date theDate = myCal.getTime();


However, I would like something shorter to replace it with (ideally one to two lines).

Answer

You could use new GregorianCalendar(theYear, theMonth, theDay).getTime():

public GregorianCalendar(int year, int month, int dayOfMonth)

Constructs a GregorianCalendar with the given date set in the default time zone with the default locale.
