How to read date (Timestamp) from MongoDB using Java

Am trying to read date field from MongoDB in below format

Formate: YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS

2017-01-23-10.46.07.812000 - DB2
2017-01-23T16:46:07.812Z   - Stored in MongoDB (While viewing from GUI tool)
Mon Jan 23 22:16:07 IST 2017 - Result/Reading from MongoDB

// Formatter for the input date
final DateTimeFormatter inputFormat = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("EEE MMM dd HH:mm:ss zzz yyyy");
final ZonedDateTime dateFiledParsed = ZonedDateTime.parse(dateFiled.toString(), inputFormat);
final DateTimeFormatter outputFormat3 = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS");
System.out.println(outputFormat3.format(publicationDateParsed));

Result: 2017-01-23 22:16:07.000000

In the result 2017-01-23 22:16:07.000000, instead of 000 it should be the 812 (Original value: 2017-01-23-10.46.07.812000)

Note: Using MongoDB Java driver 3.4.

Thank you in advance!

You can use Java’s SimpleDateFormat to format the date accordingly. For example, assuming you inserted the date in MongoDB using the proper ISODate type:

> db.test.find()
{
  "_id": ObjectId("597813a12dbe1d773beb11d2"),
  "date": ISODate("2017-01-23T16:46:07.812Z")
}

This code prints the correct date:

Document doc = collection.find().first();
Date date = doc.getDate("date");
SimpleDateFormat formattedDate = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS");
formattedDate.setTimeZone(TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"));
System.out.println(formattedDate.format(date));

Output is:

2017-01-23 16:46:07.812
