Formatting day of week in EEEE format in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

EEEEE format is used in Java Date to format day of week like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Let us use it −

// displaying day of week
SimpleDateFormat simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("EEEE");
String strDayofWeek = simpleformat.format(new Date());
System.out.println("Day of Week = "+strDayofWeek);

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 Z");
      System.out.println("Today's 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 day of week
      simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("EEEE");
      String strDayofWeek = simpleformat.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Day of Week = "+strDayofWeek);
      // current time
      simpleformat = new SimpleDateFormat("HH.mm.ss Z");
      String strTime = simpleformat.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Current Time = "+strTime);
   }
}

Output

Today's date and time = Mon, 26 Nov 2018 09:40:25 +0000
Current Date = 26/November/2018
Day of Week = Monday
Current Time = 09.40.25 +0000
