Re: UNIX time coversion

Your Unix time is probably just UTC, which represents the number of millis since some fixed point in the past.

 

Did you try passing this value into the Date() object? Try it and see what you get.

Re: UNIX time coversion

HI,

I am trying the following:

Date d = new Date(time*1000L);
SimpleDateFormat f = new SimpleDateFormat("MMM dd");
_date = f.format(d);

System.out.println("Time ::"+_date);

But its not the accurate one.

Thanks
