Java Simple Date Format

Paul's Blog On Software Development

A reminder of how to format a date for display:

1. Set the date format required

private static SimpleDateFormat dateDisplayFormat = new SimpleDateFormat(“dd MMM yyyy”);

2. Apply the date format

public String makePageTitleForBrowserTab(Date date, String title, Integer number) {
String pageTitle = “”;
if (date != null){
pageTitle += dateDisplayFormat.format(date);
if (title != null){
pageTitle += ” – ” + title;
if(number != null){
pageTitle += ” – p” + number;
return pageTitle;
