Below programs illustrate the working of computeFields() Method of Calendar class:
Example 1:




// Java Code to illustrate
// computeFields() Method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class CalendarClassDemo
    extends GregorianCalendar {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating calendar object
        CalendarClassDemo calndr = new CalendarClassDemo();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The Current "
                           + "date is: " + calndr.getTime());
  
        // Clearing the calendar
        calndr.clear();
  
        // Set a new year and call
        // computeFields()
        calndr.set(GregorianCalendar.YEAR, 2016);
        calndr.computeFields();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The recent"
                           + " date is: " + calndr.getTime());
    }
}
Output:
The Current date is: Wed Feb 13 16:15:15 UTC 2019
The recent date is: Wed Feb 13 16:15:15 UTC 2019

Example 2:




// Java Code to illustrate
// computeFields() Method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class CalendarClassDemo
    extends GregorianCalendar {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating calendar object
        CalendarClassDemo calndr = new CalendarClassDemo();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The Current "
                           + "date is: " + calndr.getTime());
  
        // Clearing the calendar
        calndr.clear();
  
        // Set a new year and call
        // computeFields()
        calndr.set(GregorianCalendar.YEAR, 2000);
        calndr.computeFields();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The recent"
                           + " date is: " + calndr.getTime());
    }
}
