To create a new date, you will need a Calendar instance and then you can set the Calendar instance to the date you need.
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
The line above returns a new Calendar instance set to the current time. Calendar has many methods for changing it’s date and time or setting it outright. In our case, we’ll set it to a specific date.
calendar.set(1980, 6, 2, 8, 0, 0);Date d = calendar.getTime();
The getTime method returns the Date instance that we need. Keep in mind that the Calendar set methods only set one or more fields, they do not set them all.
