Well,
java.util.Date d=new java.util.Date();
 /* this gives the system date in object form. Now you have choice of using deprecated Date methods or newer Calendar methods, or you could(depending on what you want to compare) just use Calendar to begin with. */
Calendar currentDate=Calendar.getInstance();
GregorianCalendar sqlData=new GregorianCalendar(yy,mm,dd);
if (currentDate.equals(sqlData)) {
  //do whatever
}
if (currentDate.before(sqlData)) {
  // do whatever
}
if (currentDate.after(sqlData)) {
 // do whatever
}

Hi!

I suppose, you have got the SQL Date as follows:

String sqlDate = rset.getString(x);

sqlDate has already the form of mm/dd/yy.

You have to convert the current date to the same form. You can use SimpleDateFormat for the same.

java.text.SimpleDateFormat formatter
               = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat ("MM'/'dd'/'yy");

String formattedDate = formatter.format(new java.util.Date());

Now, you can compare sqlDate and formattedDate.

If your doing the comparison in Java:

Date d = rs.getDate(datecol);
Date now = new Date();
if (d.equals(now))
{
   System.out.println("Date in db matches current time");
}
else if (d.before(now))
{
   System.out.println("Date in db is before current time");
}
else
{
   System.out.println("Date in db is after current time");
}

Or you can use compareTo().

// Copy from Objects :)
Date d = rs.getDate(dateCol);
Date now = new Date();

// use compareTo().
int res = d.compareTo(now);

if (res == 0)
     System.out.println("Date in db matches current time");
else if (res < 0)
     System.out.println("Date in db is before current time");
else if (res > 0)  
     System.out.println("Date in db is after current time");
