You need to insert a 'java.sql.Date' into 'ps.setDate(1, ...)'

If you need to show the date in a special format, you need to use SimpleDateFormat to format the date/timestamp returned fra the database.

To be able to store the date as a String (varchar) in the database, you need to verify that the data type for the 'date' field is a varchar - or you have to change it from date/timestamp to varchar.

Here is how you put a Date as a String into the database:

You should not! a date field should be of date type only in database



So please help me inserting the current date with the required formatting....



Why are you so specific about format, A date is stored in database as Date object not with its format. A format is only representation of date as string.

I suggest let the date be stored as Date and if you want to display same in a specific format is as Rene has suggested above. That would be an ideal approach.

Thanks,
Shailesh
