Display Month in MMMM format in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The MMMM format for months is like entire month name: January, February, March, etc. We will use it like this.

SimpleDateFormat("MMM");

Let us see an example.

// displaying month in MMMM format SimpleDateFormat simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM");
String strMonth= simpleformat.format(new Date());
System.out.println("Month in MMMM format = "+strMonth);

Above, we have used the SimpleDateFormat class, therefore the following package is imported.

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;

The following is an example.

Example

 Live Demo

import java.text.Format;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Calendar;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      // displaying current date and time
      Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
      SimpleDateFormat simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("E, dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss");
      System.out.println("Date and time = "+simpleformat.format(cal.getTime()));
      // displaying date
      simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MMMM/yyyy");
      String str = simpleformat.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Date = "+str);
      // displaying month in MMMM format
      simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM");
      String strMonth= simpleformat.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Month in MMMM format = "+strMonth);
      // current time
      simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("HH.mm.ss");
      String strTime = simpleformat.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Time = "+strTime);
   }
}

Output

Date and time = Mon, 26 Nov 2018 10:46:10
Current Date = 26/November/2018
Month in MMMM format = November
Current Time = 10.46.10
