Here we will see how to convert Timestamp to Date in java in different ways.

Convert Timestamp to Date:

We can convert the java.sql.Timestamp to java.util.Date in different ways in Java, let’s see the possibilities.

1. Timestamp to Date Using Date constructor:

We can convert the Timestamp to Date by passing a Timestamp object to Date constructor like the following.

// Using date constructor
Timestamp timestamp = new Timestamp(System.currentTimeMillis());
Date date = new Date(timestamp.getTime());
System.out.println(date);

Output:

Tue Apr 09 17:52:48 IST 2019

2. Timestamp to DateUsing Date Reference:

We can even get the Date type by simply assigning the Timestamp object to Date reference.

Note: java.sql.Timestamp class extends from the java.util.Date class.
Timestamp timestamp = new Timestamp(System.currentTimeMillis());
Date date = timestamp;
System.out.println(date);

Output:

2019-04-09 17:52:48.292

3. Timestamp to Date Using Calendar class:

// Using Calendar
Timestamp timestamp = new Timestamp(System.currentTimeMillis());
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.setTimeInMillis(timestamp.getTime() );
System.out.println(calendar.getTime());

Output:

Tue Apr 09 17:52:48 IST 2019
