This class is used to help us to convert a date format object into the integer fields like YEAR, MONTH, HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND etc.


This method gives us the minute value from the current time and MINUTE is the predefined field of the Calendar class which returns the integer value i.e. the minute value of the current time.


This field of the Calendar class is used to return the integer value 1 and 0, if the current time is in the PM then it return the 1 otherwise it returns 0 value.


package r4r;
import java.util.*;
public class correnttimetest {
public static void main(String[] args){
Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar();
String am_pm;
int hour = cal.get(Calendar.HOUR);
int minute = cal.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
int second = cal.get(Calendar.SECOND);
if(cal.get(Calendar.AM_PM) == 0)
am_pm = "AM";
am_pm = "PM";
System.out.println("Current Time is: " + hour + ":" 
 + minute + ":" + second + " " + am_pm);
