SimpleDateFormat(“HH:mm:ss Z”) in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The Z means "zero hour offset", also known as "Zulu time" (UTC) in the ISO 8601 time representation. However, ACP 121 standard defines the list of military time zones and derives the "Zulu time" from theGreenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Let us see the usage of SimpleDateFormat(“HH:mm:ss Z”) −

Format f = new SimpleDateFormat("HH.mm.ss Z");
String strResult = f.format(new Date());
System.out.println("Time = "+strResult);

The following is the complete example that displays time with offset (HH:mm:ss Z) −

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("dd/MMMM/yyyy hh:mm:s");
      System.out.println("Today's date = "+simpleformat.format(cal.getTime()));
      // current time
      Format f = new SimpleDateFormat("HH.mm.ss Z");
      String strResult = f.format(new Date());
      System.out.println("Time = "+strResult);
      // 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 = 26/November/2018 08:52:33
Time = 08.52.33 +0000
Current Hour = 8
Current Minutes = 52
Current Seconds = 33
