public class DisplayDay {

 public static void main(String[] args) {

  // Getting current date and time.
  Date date = new Date();
  DateFormat weekFormat = null;
  String day = null;
  /*
   * u -> day number in Week (1-> Monday, 7-Sunday). 
   * E, EE,EEE -> day name in 3 chars. 
   * EEEE -> Full day name.
   */
  weekFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("u");
  // Convert Date to String.
  day = weekFormat.format(date);
  System.out.println("Day number in week : " + day);
  weekFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("E");
  // Convert Date to String.
  day = weekFormat.format(date);
  System.out.println("Day name in 3 chars : " + day);
  weekFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("EEEE");
  // Convert Date to String.
  day = weekFormat.format(date);
