Below programs illustrates the use of getTime() function



Example 1: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then get the LastModifiedTime of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. we will take a “.zip” file as ZipEntry




// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of getTime() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.nio.file.attribute.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        try {
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // get the Zip Entry using
            // the getEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file.zip");
  
            // Get the LastModifiedTime
            // using the getTime()
            // function
            long input = entry.getTime();
  
            // Display the LastModifiedTime
            System.out.println("LastModifiedTime : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}
Output:
LastModifiedTime : 1551033735858

Example 2: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then get the LastModifiedTime of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. we will take a “.cpp” file as ZipEntry




// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of getTime() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.nio.file.attribute.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        try {
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // get the Zip Entry using
            // the getEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file1.cpp");
  
            // Get the LastModifiedTime
            // using the getTime()
            // function
            long input = entry.getTime();
  
            // Display the LastModifiedTime
            System.out.println("LastModifiedTime : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}
Output:
LastModifiedTime : 1544189602654
