Parameters: The method does not take any parameters. Return Value: The method does not return any value. Below programs illustrate the working of computeTime() Method of Calendar class: Example 1:
// Java Code to illustrate

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
        // computeTime()
        calndr.set(GregorianCalendar.YEAR, 2016);
        calndr.computeTime();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The recent"
                           + " date is: " + calndr.getTime());
    }
}

        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
        // computeTime()
        calndr.set(GregorianCalendar.YEAR, 2000);
        calndr.computeTime();
  
        // Displaying the current date
        System.out.println("The recent"
                           + " date is: " + calndr.getTime());
    }
}
