Java Date Conversion


String to Date

java.text.SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
java.util.Date date = df.parse("21/06/2003");


Date to String

String s = df.format(date);


Create a date

java.util.GregorianCalendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(2002, 5, 8); // 2002-Jun-08
java.util.Date date = calendar.getTime();

Note that month is zero based. I.e. January = 0, December = 11

java.sql.Date date = new java.sql.Date(new GregorianCalendar(2003, 00, 01).getTime().getTime());
