I have a string coming in that is actually a date that has this format MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss. I want to take this date and reformat it so it looks like this dd-MMM-yyyy and the key here is I need to return the data back as a string again not a Date() object. I was playing around with simpleDate format but can't get it to work. please help....

SimpleDateFormat f = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss");
Date date = f.parse("11/02/2000 13:34:45");
SimpleDateFormat ff = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy");
String newstr = ff.format(date);

I did the following code

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.text.ParseException;
import java.util.*;


public class Test
{
     public static void main(String args[])
     {
     SimpleDateFormat f = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss");
     Date date = f.parse("11/02/2000 13:34:45");
     System.out.println("F = " + date );
     SimpleDateFormat ff = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy");
     String newstr = ff.format(date);
     System.out.println("n = " + newstr );
      }
}


This printed the values as below:

F = Thu Nov 02 13:34:45 EST 2000
n = 02-Nov-2000

I do not understand, what else did you need?

Let me know if you need any more clarification.

ksalman, why are you answering? The answer is right above.
In here people gives hints how to solve problems, not doing the work for them. Anton gave the clear answer. You dont have to copy his code and fill out the rest of the code.
Its quite obvious.
