I am new to Scala and I’ve learned it for the last few days. I have a doubt about Scala’s date converting from string.
How to convert String to Date and time using Scala ?
Does it work the same way as Java?
When I do it that way, I get a compiler error and I can’t convert that into Scala because I am new to Scala. And I know that it’s not good to convert Java to Scala…
Please share your answer.
Practice As Follows
If you are using Java’s util.Date then like in java:
val format = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd") format.parse("2013-07-06")
docs for formating – SimpleDateFormat
or if you are using joda’s DateTime, then call parse method:
