Hi,

I am trying to fetch date from the database, which is a date type there. I want to pouplate JTextField with the date in mm/dd/yy format. I mean set the text of the textfield to e.g., 04/01/04. Date can be any date not only the sysdate.
And also, suppose the date is 04/01/04. How can I select the next date i mean the date of next day..????? I wud appreciate for a quick response.

If you want the next day:

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.setTime(yourDate);
cal.add(Calendar.DATE, 1);
textField.setText(sdf.format(cal.getTime()));

Use the CEHJ Comment and later if you want to change the format of your date use this method:


 /**   Turns a date of a format other one
     * @return A chain with the date in the requested format
     * @param strFecha Date of entry
     * @param strFormatoIn Format of entry
     * @param strFormatoOut Format of exit
     * @throws Exception
     */
    public static String fechaEnFormato(String strFecha, String strFormatoIn, String strFormatoOut) throws Exception {
        String strFechaEnFormato = null;
        try {
           
            SimpleDateFormat formatterIn = new SimpleDateFormat(strFormatoIn);
            SimpleDateFormat formatterOut = new SimpleDateFormat(strFormatoOut);
            ParsePosition pos = new ParsePosition(0);
            strFechaEnFormato = (formatterOut.format(formatterIn.parse(strFecha, pos)));
        } catch (Exception objException) {
            throw (new Exception("Incorrect date format strFecha=" + strFecha + ",strFormatoOut=" + strFormatoOut));
        }
        return strFechaEnFormato;
    }

I hope that it helps,

>>i m getting from the database with timestamp

In that case, that should be

Timestamp t = resultSet.getTimestamp("yourDateField");
java.util.Date yourDate = new java.util.Date(t.getTime());
// previous code should follow

No - a date in a database doesn't have a format - it's just a number. What you're looking at is a particular *view* of it and a that's a view of a sql date type (no time portion). The formatting will come when you apply 'sdf'. In this case, since there is not time portion, you'll get

04/02/04
