When you instantiate a GregorianCalendar object in Java, it is created with the current time.

    Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar();

Then you can use the Calendar object or its methods to get the time information you need.

    // Get the components of the time
    System.out.println( cal.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY) ); // print the current hour from 0-23
    System.out.println( cal.get(Calendar.MINUTE) );      // print the current minute from 0-59
    System.out.println( cal.get(Calendar.SECOND) );      // print the current second from 0-59

Many more functions are listed in the Java API.


time = Time.now

See the Ruby API for functions available to time object.
