Return Value: The method returns the beginning date of the 100-year period 2-digit years those are interpreted as being set within the Date

Below programs illustrate the working of get2DigitYearStart() Method of SimpleDateFormat:



Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate
// get2DigitYearStart() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.Calendar;
  
public class SimpleDateFormat_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws InterruptedException
    {
  
        SimpleDateFormat dt
            = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/ dd/ yy");
  
        try {
            Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
            cal.setTime(dt.parse("01/ 28/ 19"));
            System.out.println("The Starting Time: "
                               + cal.getTime());
  
            // Setting 1916 instead of 2016
            // Using set2DigitYearStart() method
            dt.set2DigitYearStart(
                dt.parse("01/ 01/ 1900"));
            cal.setTime(dt.parse("05/ 12/ 17"));
            System.out.println("The New Time: "
                               + cal.getTime());
  
            // Use of get2DigitYearStart() method
            // to check start year
            cal.setTime(dt.get2DigitYearStart());
            System.out.println("The start Year: "
                               + cal.get(Calendar.YEAR));
        }
  
        catch (ParseException excpt) {
            excpt.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}
Output:
The Starting Time: Mon Jan 28 00:00:00 UTC 2019
The New Time: Sat May 12 00:00:00 UTC 1917
The start Year: 1900

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate
// get2DigitYearStart() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.Calendar;
  
public class SimpleDateFormat_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws InterruptedException
    {
  
        SimpleDateFormat dt
            = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/ dd/ yy");
  
        try {
            Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
            cal.setTime(dt.parse("01/ 28/ 19"));
            System.out.println("The Starting Time: "
                               + cal.getTime());
  
            // Setting 1916 instead of 2016
            // Using set2DigitYearStart() method
            dt.set2DigitYearStart(
                dt.parse("01/ 01/ 2000"));
            cal.setTime(dt.parse("05/ 12/ 17"));
            System.out.println("The New Time: "
                               + cal.getTime());
  
            // Use of get2DigitYearStart() method
            // to check start year
            cal.setTime(dt.get2DigitYearStart());
            System.out.println("The start Year: "
                               + cal.get(Calendar.YEAR));
        }
  
        catch (ParseException excpt) {
            excpt.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}
Output:
The Starting Time: Mon Jan 28 00:00:00 UTC 2019
The New Time: Fri May 12 00:00:00 UTC 2017
