public class Calendar_Demo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating calendar object
        Calendar calndr = Calendar.getInstance();
  
        // Getting the time in milliseconds
        System.out.println("The Current"
                           + " Time is: "
                           + calndr.getTime());
  
        // Changing time to 2000 milli-second
        calndr.setTimeInMillis(2000);
  
        // Displaying the new time
        System.out.println("After setting"
                           + " Time: "
                           + calndr.getTime());
    }
}
Output:

        // Changing time to 8000 milli-second
        calndr.setTimeInMillis(8000);
  
        // Displaying the new time
