How to print date in Java Script

Date object enables Java Script programmers to create an object that contains information about a particular date and provides a set of methods to work with that information. To create an instance of the date object, use the keyword new as follows:
var my_date = new Date(parameters);
The parameter, if left empty, indicates today's date & time . The parameter could be any specific date format.

Date object provides the following methods.

getDate( ) : Returns date of the month as an integer from 1 to 31.
setDate( ) : Sets date of the month based on an integer argument from 1 to 31.
getHours( ) : Returns hours as an integer from 0 to 23.
setHours( ) : Sets hours based on an argument from 0 to 23.
getTime( ) : Returns number of milliseconds since 1 feb 2014 at 00:00:00
setTime( ) : Sets time based on an argument representing the number of Milliseconds since 1 feb 2014 at 00:00:00.
