The Date class itself doesn't provide input routines. Its design is flawed in a number of ways, in my opinion, mostly due to some quirky argument and result range choices. However, it should have no problem with Y2K stuff. Internally the class counts the number of milliseconds since Jan 1st, 1970. So that will be OK. Argument wise the year is specced as the number of years since 1900. So for the year 2001, the argument will simply be 101. How that is input w.r.t. the user is up to you.
