Java date add months

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add months to date.

Here, we are going to add few months to current date and return the date of that day. For this, we have created a calendar instance and get a date to represent the current date. Then using the method add() of Calendar class, we have added 4 months to the calendar and using the Date class, we have got the date of that day.


import java.util.*;

public class AddMonthsToDate{

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
    Date today = calendar.getTime();
    System.out.println("Today's Date: " + today);
    calendar.add(Calendar.MONTH, 4);
    Date addMonths = calendar.getTime();
    System.out.println("Date after 4 months: " + addMonths);


Today's Date: Tue Oct 09 13:08:07 IST 2012
Date after 4 months: Sat Feb 09 13:08:07 IST 2013
