If we have the Date object of the SQL package, then we can easily convert it into an util Date object. We need to pass the getTime() method while creating the util Date object.

java.util.Date  utilDate = new java.util.Date(sqlDate.getTime());

It will give us util Date object.

getTime() method

Syntax:

public long getTime()

Parameters: The function does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: It returns the number of milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GTM.

Exception: The function does not throw any exception.

Java




// Java program to Convert java.sql.Date to java.util.Date
 
import java.sql.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // sql date object takes time in milliseconds
        long millis = System.currentTimeMillis();
 
        // creating sql date object
        java.sql.Date sqlDate = new java.sql.Date(millis);
 
        // creating util date object by passing gettime()
        // method of sql date class
        java.util.Date utilDate = new java.util.Date(sqlDate.getTime());
 
        DateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
       
        // converting the util date into string format
        final String stringDate = dateFormat.format(utilDate);
 
        // printing both dates
        System.out.println("utilDate:" + stringDate);
        System.out.println("sqlDate:" + sqlDate);
    }
}


Output:

utilDate:2021-01-20
sqlDate:2021-01-20
