The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

GeneralDatetimes in java (again) Pin

GregorianCalendar date = new GregorianCalendar(1888, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0);
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("YYYY");
String convertedstring = sdf.format(date.getTime());
System.out.println(convertedstring);


output: 1887 (on my laptop anayway)

GregorianCalendar date = new GregorianCalendar(1888, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0);
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy");
String convertedstring = sdf.format(date.getTime());
System.out.println(convertedstring);


output: 1888

For those who didn't notice, in sample 1 I put "YYYY", in sample 2 "yyyy".
I couldn’t immediately find something in the docs or google explaining this…
