Display three letter-month value with SimpleDateFormat('MMM') in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Using the SimpleDateFormat(“MMM”) to display three-letter month −

Format f = new SimpleDateFormat("MMM");
String strMonth = f.format(new Date());
System.out.println("Month (Three-letter format) = "+strMonth);

Since, we have used the Format and SimpleDateFormat class above, therefore import the following packages. With that, we have also used the Date −

import java.text.Format;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;

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 Z");
      System.out.println("Today's date and time = "+simpleformat.format(cal.getTime()));
      // displaying date
      Format f = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MMMM/yyyy");
      String strDate = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Date = "+strDate);
      // displaying year
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy");
      String strYear = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Year = "+strYear);
      // displaying three-letter month
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("MMM");
      String strMonth = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Month (Three-letter format) = "+strMonth);
      // current time
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("HH.mm.ss Z");
      String strTime = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Time = "+strTime);
      // displaying hour
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("H");
      String strHour = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Hour = "+strHour);
      // displaying minutes
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("mm");
      String strMinute = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Minutes = "+strMinute);
      // displaying seconds
      f = new SimpleDateFormat("ss");
      String strSeconds = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Seconds = "+strSeconds);
   }
}

Output

Today's date and time = Mon, 26 Nov 2018 09:29:58 +0000
Current Date = 26/November/2018
Year = 2018
Month (Three-letter format) = Nov
Current Time = 09.29.58 +0000
Current Hour = 9
Current Minutes = 29
Current Seconds = 58
