17 Examples of Calendar and Date in Java

The java.util.Calendar class was added in Java on JDK 1.4 in an attempt to fix some flaws of the java.util.Date class. It did make some task simpler, e.g. create an arbitrary date comes easier using new GregorianCalendar(2016, Calendar.JUNE, 11) constructor, as opposed to Date class where the year starts from 1900 and Month was starting from zero. It didn't solve all the problems e.g. mutability and thread-safety of Date class still remains, but it does make life easier at that time. Now with Java 8 everything related to Date and Time has become super easy and consistent but unfortunately, it will take another 5 to 10 years before older version of Java goes away. Don't believe me, there are still applications running on JDK 1.5 which was released 12 years ago. The bottom line is it's still important to know about Date and Calendar in Java.
