Currently Being Moderated

i want to get the current system time and compare with the two different timing example startwindow time as 2:00:00AM and endWindowTime as 6:00:00AM. if my current system time falls between these window i have to execute my rest of the code.

my below code works for fine for JAVA 1.6 version when i do the same code with JAVA 1.4 i am getting different date and time

String starTime=(String) NightlyvendorStatus[0].getPropertyValue("startTime");
String endTime=(String) NightlyvendorStatus[0].getPropertyValue("endTime");
Date windowStarttime = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm:ss").parse(starTime);
Date windowEndtime = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm:ss").parse(endTime);

Date systemdate = new Date();
SimpleDateFormat parser = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm:ss");
String systemTime=parser.format(systemdate);
Date currentTime = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm:ss").parse(systemTime);

if (currentTime.after(windowStarttime) && currentTime.before(windowEndtime))

{ --- rest of the logic here ---}

the output from JAVA 1.4 IS Thu Jan 01 02:00:00 GMT 1970 Thu Jan 01 06:00:00 GMT 1970 Thu Jan 01 03:23:00 GMT 1970

HOW TO DO this logic..
