Hi ,
I have a java.util.Date object that is obtained as an input to my application. Now this Date will be in a particular format.
I need convert it to String without changing the format of the incoming Date object. In other words, I need to preserve the date format of the incoming Date when it is converted to String .
Can someone let me know how to identify the format of the incoming Date object and then convert it to String. Thanks in advance.
:roll:

A Date is an abstract representation of a point in time using UTC (UT, GMT). It doesn't have a format that you could preserve, nor does it carry locale information from which you could perhaps infer a format.
