dateFormat.format(dt)

The following is an example

public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {
      Date dt = new Date();
      SimpleDateFormat dateFormat;
      dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("kk:mm:ss");
      System.out.println("Time in 24 hr format = "+dateFormat.format(dt));
   }
}

Output
