I have a column in a JTable that holds a date value in mm/dd/yyyy format. The actual value in the database is a java.util.Date, but we convert it to a string using a SimpleDateFormat to get it into the mm/dd/yyyy format.
In string form though, it doesn't sort correctly: 11/10/2003 comes before 11/11/2002. When I leave it a date, it sorts correctly, but displays in the wrong format: MMM dd, yyyy.
Does anyone know a way around this?
