Date and week randomizer

Date and week randomizer

Date and week randomizer

Hello everyone,

I need to create a a simple java function where I can put start and end datum in the format 201901 up to 202052
that means every year have got 52 week. so the randomizer put a value between year 2019 and 2020. also a week between 01 to 52.
and the format need to look like


my atempt is below but how do I keep the leading zero ?

CODE --> java

public static void main(String[]args)
			public static void main(String[]args)
		int weekMin=01;
		int weekMax=52;
		int YearMin=2019;
		int YearMax=2020;
		int randomWeek = ThreadLocalRandom.current().nextInt(weekMin, weekMax + 1);
		int randomYear = ThreadLocalRandom.current().nextInt(YearMin, YearMax + 1);
		String Week = String.format("%02d", randomWeek);


Thank you in advance

What are you getting now?


RE: Date and week randomizer


Before you get deeper into this approach, I would like to bring in your attention that not all years have 52 weeks. For example 2015 and 2020 have 53.


RE: Date and week randomizer

as I mentioned its between 2019 and 2020 @feherke.
