Java_LogoTo get the day of the week from a java.util.Date object, we can use the java.text.SimpleDateFormat class. First, create a Date object. Next, create a SimpleDateFormat instance using the getDateInstance() method, passing the String “E” or “EEEE” as the argument. Get the day of the week as a String using the format() method passing in the java.util.Date object. To get the weekday in numerical format, we can use the java.util.Calendar object’s get method passing in Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK.
