    Adding date and time to a class?

    Hi,

    I'm currently writing a number of classes to handle video loans etc. The current class, called 'Loans', handles simple information about a loan of a video to a borrower.

    My question is simply how do I add the date and time to this class so it is represented with the loan information for a borrower?

    My code for this class is currently as follows,

    Code:
    package videos;
    
    import simplejava.*;
    
    public class Loan {
        
        private Borrower borrower;
        private Video video;
        
        public Loan() {
            this.video = video;
            this.borrower = borrower;
        }
        
        
        
         public String toString() {
            return video + "" + borrower;
        }
        
    }
    Basically, when I call the toString method I need to be able to print out the date and time as well. Any help really appreciated!!

    Re: Adding date and time to a class?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. I want to be able to add the date and time when the video rental period began, so the current time when the video was rented.

    Any ideas??

    look at the methods of java.text.DateFormat - you'll find the way to capture the current time and current date ...
