Hi..
I am facing some problem while formatting the date.


SimpleDateFormat sdf=new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/DD");
java.util.Date d=sdf.parse(Edate.substring(0,9));
Date nd=new Date(sdf.format(d));


Im getting EDate value from a service in the format yyyy-mm-dd.
I have to set this date value to another method ,so im trying to convert the string to date.
When i try to print d and nd values ,it is not printimg the value i retrieved and it is printimg in the format dd/mm/yy.
What can i do to get the correct date and in the same format as yyyy/mm/dd?

Thanks in advance.

you can use DateFormat class in java.text package
for example
DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateInstance();
for (int i = 0; i < myDate.length; ++i) {
output.println(df.format(myDate[i]) + "; ");
}

If the date you are reading uses '-' as a separator, why are you trying to reading it with a pattern that uses '/' as a separator ?

try this
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
class Dates3 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Date d1 = new Date(1000000000000L);

DateFormat[] dfa = new DateFormat[6];
dfa[0] = DateFormat.getInstance();
dfa[1] = DateFormat.getDateInstance();
dfa[2] = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.SHORT);
dfa[3] = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM);
dfa[4] = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.LONG);
dfa[5] = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.FULL);

for(DateFormat df : dfa)
System.out.println(df.format(d1));
}
}
