The java.util.GregorianCalendar.hashCode() is an in-built function in Java which generates hash code for this GregorianCalendar instance. Syntax:
public int hashCode()
Parameters: This function does not accept any parameters. Return Values: This function returns an integer value which represents the hash code for this GregorianCalendar instance. Examples:
Input : Thu Jul 24 00:53:29 UTC 1997
Output : 2121703905

Input : Tue Jul 24 00:54:11 UTC 2018
Output : -909136554
Below programs illustrate the java.util.GregorianCalendar.hashCode() function: Program 1:
// Java Program to illustrate hashCode() function
// of GregorianCalendar class
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG {
     public static void main(String[] args) {
      
      // Create a new calendar
      GregorianCalendar c = (GregorianCalendar) 
                GregorianCalendar.getInstance();
  
      // Display the current date and time
      System.out.println("Current Date and Time : "
                                    + c.getTime());
        
      // Display hashcode for this calendar
      System.out.println("Hash Code:" + c.hashCode());
   }
}

                    
Output:
Current Date and Time : Fri Jul 27 11:43:16 UTC 2018
Hash Code:-612105832
Program 2:
// Java Program to illustrate hashCode() function
// of GregorianCalendar class
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG {
     public static void main(String[] args) {
      
      // Create a new calendar
      GregorianCalendar c = (GregorianCalendar) 
                 GregorianCalendar.getInstance();
  
      // Display the current date and time
      System.out.println("Current Date and Time : "
                                     + c.getTime());
        
      c.add((GregorianCalendar.YEAR), -12);
      System.out.println("Modified Date and Time : "
                                    + c.getTime());
        
      // Display hashcode for this calendar
      System.out.println("Hash Code of the "
      "modified date and time:" + c.hashCode());
   }
}

                    
Output:
Current Date and Time : Fri Jul 27 11:43:18 UTC 2018
Modified Date and Time : Thu Jul 27 11:43:18 UTC 2006
Hash Code of the modified date and time:-1346149059
