String myDate = Datetime.now().addDays(14).formatGmt('MM/DD');

Works fine when I execute from Developer console, today is 24 Jan and it prints 02/07 which is correct.

But when I execute in a Batch class it prints 02/38 which is wrong, why ?


You're not using the right format for days. From SimpleDateFormat:

D Day in year
d Day in month

So it sounds like you want to use MM/dd.
