date problem...again..

i am still confused. Hope my code and situation can be sovled.

****

//it's a string consist of dd/MM/yyyy date format
String ida= request.getParameter("InsDateA");

//Declare and initiate a date
java.util.Date eda = new java.util.Date();
..
..
Calendar f_a  = Calendar.getInstance();
..
..
..
    if (rs.next()) {
        a_term=rs.getString("FilterA");
..
..

if (ida!=null || ida!="") {
    System.out.println("Inside the null");
    f_a.setTime(df.parse(ida));
    f_a.add(Calendar.MONTH, Integer.parseInt(a_term));
    eda=f_a.getTime();
}

...
....
    if ((eda == null) || (eda.equals(""))){
            pstmt.setNull( 7, java.sql.Types.DATE );
        } else {
              pstmt.setDate(7, new java.sql.Date(eda));
        }

********
basically i accept user enter date (ida), from there i retrieve a terms (in month) from db. Then i add the ida with this terms, and get a date. Then with this date, i pump it into a Date field in my db.

the question is,
1. based on the above code, anything wrong with the ttype and the declaration?
2. I keep on getting this error;
javax.servlet.ServletException: Unparseable date: " "
      at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.handlePageException(PageContextImpl.java:471)

when i did enter the ida date. But i thought i have already check the date before i do anything.

  if (ida!=null || ida!="") {

  }

have can i sovle this error?? unparseable date ?

does your table has more then 3 columns? try:
insert into purchase( customer, warranty, eda ) values(?,?,?)

try this

        } else {
              SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat( "dd/MM/yyyy" ) ;

        }

let me know if it works

no no no...

kuldeep, nice to see you again. Hope you are not late this time for helping me. :-)

I have this senario. User enter a date, called it as ida, and i need to calculate the ExpiredDate based on the terms i retrieve from the db. I manage to print out this term and proved that can retrieve data.

**key word**: I have execute the sql statement YET!! I remark these code,

 if ((eda == null) || (eda.equals(""))){
           pstmt.setNull( 7, java.sql.Types.DATE );
       } else {
             pstmt.setDate(7, new java.sql.Date(eda));
       }

and run the same problem and have the javax.servlet.ServletException: Unparseable date: " "
    at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.handlePageException(PageContextImpl.java:471)
error....

meaning to say it's before the code, and i suspect (since it's the only code) is this part

if (ida!=null || ida!="") {
    System.out.println("Inside the null");
   f_a.setTime(df.parse(ida));
    f_a.add(Calendar.MONTH, Integer.parseInt(a_term));
   eda=f_a.getTime();
}

any problem? from the code? the ida is a String, i need to set the ida into f_a as a Calendar. then i add the months into f_a. Then i retrieve the eda date after added the terms.

But when i test it, with a blank ida, it'll prompt me the error... VERY sure that i remark off the SQL part of code.

TQ.

Well anyway you can always parse the data as String and make the transformation on the SQL Statement that's why I asked:
pstmt.setString(7, "12/12/2003");
slq= "....... TO_DATE(?,"MM/DD/YYYY") ......"

That's what I mean. most of the time is better becose depending on the database you use Date formats are totally unuseful

Hmm.......
just one question before we proceed.... have you tried printing the ida or eda at the console??
Imean just do a

 (ida!=null || ida!="") {
    System.out.println("Inside the null");
    System.out.println(ida);
 f_a.setTime(df.parse(ida));
    f_a.add(Calendar.MONTH, Integer.parseInt(a_term));
   eda=f_a.getTime();
System.out.println(eda);
}
 and let us see what we get..... I guess your calculation and juggeling around the date is getting u in trouble.....

That might work, but use prepare statement with sql.Date object is better approach then this.
>>  slq= "....... TO_DATE(?,"MM/DD/YYYY") ......"
a lot of database doens't support to_date function.

>>  Unparseable date: " "
notice that there is a space between the quote, and it also should be AND, not OR try:
(ida!=null && ida.trim().length() > 0) {
  ...

fks2Author Commented:
yeah, you are right ken,
the space it between.
:-)


if (ida!=null && ida.trim().length() > 0) {
    System.out.println("Inside the null");
    System.out.println("IDA = "+ ida);
    System.out.println("EDA (b4 addtime) = "+ eda);
    f_a.setTime(df.parse(ida));
    f_a.add(Calendar.MONTH, Integer.parseInt(a_term));
    eda=f_a.getTime();
    System.out.println("EDA (after addtime) = "+ eda);
}

I wouldl ike to ask how can initialise a eda ?
if i declare like this,
java.util.Date eda = new java.util.Date();
it'll declare the eda as today date.

if i declare like

java.util.Date eda;

it's prompt me error saying i didn't initialise...

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
do a eda=null;
that should also take care of compilation atleast...

CONFIRMED it's the same value.. but how come it's say doesn't same?

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
thats a strange msg you are getting! the code above will set three parameters one way or the another..!! you sure that your table has got three columns only??
Also ( this is without a reason.... but try putting a semicolon in your query statement)....

As far as I know MS Access does support it, anyway if they dunnot should have an equivalent, I should give it a try.
