Hi GredL,

 Before setting date in preparedStatement , it should be in yyyy-mm-dd format.

How will you convert

Tue Nov 23 15:11:44 1999



Thank you
   SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE MMM d hh:mm:ss yyyy");
    ParsePosition pos = new ParsePosition(0);
    java.util.Date dte = sdf.parse("Tue Nov 23 15:11:44 1999", pos);

can be used for parsing the date from String object to Date object.

You don't need to.  You just pass the Date() object.

I must use java.util.Date or java.sql.Date ? Beside that, how to change "Tue Nov 23 15:11:44 1999" into format "yyyy-mm-dd" ?
My friend tell me I can pass string into date field in the table. It will convert automatically. Is that true ?
This is answered in your query on "Date II"
