Lightbulb Use java.util.Date class

Hi sugoi

You can change the time or you can set it using the java.util.Date class's function setTime(long time).

Use Like this
Code:
  java.util.Date BBDate = new java.util.Date();// this will point BBDate to current time settings.
  long time = 0xabc12def34abL;// long value representing the time, it'll represent a point in time that is time milliseconds after January 1, 1970 00:00:00 GMT.  
  BBDate.setTime(time);
Good Luck
Anand

Won't that just change the time of the new Date instance you have created, not change the whole system time permanently?
