    Default SimpleDateFormat

    I have the following code:
    package com.wowza.wms.example.module; 
    import org.apache.log4j.Level; 
    import com.wowza.wms.logging.*; 
    import com.wowza.wms.stream.IMediaStream; 
    public class NewLogFields implements ILogNotify 
    { 
    public void onLog(Level level, String comment, IMediaStream stream, 
    String category, String event, int status, String context) { 
     
    long systime = System.currentTimeMillis(); 
    WMSLoggerFactory.putGlobalLogValue("systime-long", new Long(systime)); 
    } 
    }


    that provides the variable 'systime-long' with the date output of
    1278538830508
    but instead I would like the output to be like
    [07/Jul/2010:16:45:28 -0400]
    I have found that 'SimpleDateFormat' might work for me with the date format of
    [d/MMM/yyyy:HH:mm:ss Z]
    but I unfortunately am not Java savvy.

    Can anyone help with with this?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can just use Java's date/calender API.

    The following outlines how you can use the SimpleDateFormat class:

    SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("mm.dd.yy");
    System.out.println(sdf.format(new java.util.Date()));

    Look at the API for SimpleDateFormat (Java 2 Platform SE 5.0)
    for more info on how you can use the constructor to format the output.

    I think you are correct, but I am not sure how to incorporate that into my code. I do suspect the format for the output is: [d/MMM/yyyy:HH:mm:ss Z]

    Any advice how how to incorporate it into my code?

    Thanks!

    You could try to pass the format function in replacement of the Long however I'm guessing this will not work given the parameter value seems to specify a long via 'systime-long'...
    WMSLoggerFactory.putGlobalLogValue("systime-long", sdf.format(new Date()));
    I'm unfamiliar with the WMSLoggerFactory class, but if this does not work for you may try to investigate whether there is another key you can use instead of systime-long which specifies a String or a date.
