Date conversion into different data type

Most of times, we've busy with converting one data type into another data type and validations. That's a developer's life. Actually it's makes life interesting.

This is old, anyhow I post here. Just try it.

Convert current time to long Timestamp.
    public static long getCurrentTimeStamp(Context context) {
        long timestamp = 0;
        try {
            Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance(TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT"), Locale.getDefault());
            SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMMM-yyyy hh:mm ss a");
            timestamp = c.getTime().getTime();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            //handle exception
        }
        return timestamp;
    }


Convert Date into String

    public static String convertDate(Date date) {
        String format = "dd-MMM-yyyy hh:mm a";
        SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(format);
        String stringDate = "";
        try {
            stringDate = sdf.format(date);
        } catch (Exception e) {
            //handle exception
        }
        return stringDate;
    }

Convert Timestamp into String

    public static String getDateString(long timeStamp) {
        try {
            SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMMM-yyyy");
            Date netDate = (new Date(timeStamp));
            return sdf.format(netDate);
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            //handle exception
        }
    }

Convert String into Date

public static Date stringToDate(String str) {
        Date date = null;
        SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("hh:mm a MMM dd");
        try {
            date = format.parse(str);
            System.out.println(date);
        } catch (ParseException e) {
             //handle exception
        }
        return date;
    }
