    Default How to set time for Calender


    I would like to set a specific time for a Calendar instance. My below code will set a time one minute ahead of the current time, and format it to ISO8601 standard.

    Java Code:
    Calendar reminderDate = Calendar.getInstance();
    SimpleDateFormat sdf1 = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss");
    String finalReminderDate = sdf1.format(reminderDate.getTime());

    I now want to set another variable(deadlineDate), but to a specific time, say 5 minutes ahead. I would like to hardcode this in so I dont want it to change as a result of getting the instance of the Calendar(which sets it to the current time)

    Essentially I am trying to regenerate the above code every minute and increment itself each cycle until it reaches the deadlineDate, which is a fixed datetime.

    How can I do this?

    See the API docs for Timer and TimerTask.

    Also look at the SimpleDateFormat class's parse() method.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
