I declared a column in table as:

The date set in table is of type yyyy-mm-dd .Is this default? I want to change it to dd-mm-yyyy as my values to be set in the table are of the form dd-mm-yyyy

My DB is MySql... how do i change it?

Hi. The database does not store your date in that format. Your query tool shows it like that, but internally, the date is stored as a numeric value.
You can use the MySQL date formatting functions to show the date as you please.

In a java program, you could format the date using java.text.SimpleDateFormat. To convert your dd-mm-yyyy from String to Date, you can use SimpleDateFormat.parse(). You can then insert that Date in your database. Here is an example of both cases.
