      // displaying current date and time
      Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
      SimpleDateFormat simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MMMM/yyyy hh:mm:s");
      System.out.println("Today's date = "+simpleformat.format(cal.getTime()));
      // displaying hour
      Format f = new SimpleDateFormat("H");
      String strHour = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Hour = "+strHour);
      // displaying minutes in two-digits
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("mm");
      String strMinute = f.format(new Date());
