Hi,
I am having a String of containing date in the format 'dd/mm/yyyy' OR 'dd-MMM-YYYY' OR 'mm-dd-yyyy' format. I need to convert the string to java.sql.Date object so that I can perform a query the database for the date field. Can any one suggest me with the code please.
Regards,
Smitha

You can get a Date back from the valueOf() method in java.sql.Date, but it requires "JDBC escape" format, i.e., yyyy-mm-dd.
While we here, would you mind re-registering using the two name format spelled out in JavaRanch's namign policy? We're striving to make sure our site has the kind of appearance that corporate managers wouldn't mind seeing on their employee's monitors, and presenting a proper name helps us do that. Thanks.
