Convert Date Object to Calendar object

Former Member

I have a Date field in my webdynpro application, I need to to read this from my current context and convert the same to a Calendar field and pass it to my model.

Calendar date = CalendarConverter.parseDate(req_date.toString());

The above code gives me a null pointer exception.

Can anyone suggest me the right way of handling this Date object to Calendar object conversion?

Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
/* Option 1 */
calendar.setTime( dt );
dt is java.util.Date/java.sql.Date/java.sql.Timestamp instance
/* Option 2 */
calendar.setTimeInMillis( System.currentTimeMillis() );
