search google for all the java date formats, here are some common ones
dd MMMMM yyyy
yyyy.MM.dd G 'at' hh:mm:ss z
yyyy.MMMMM.dd GGG hh:mm aaa
    String format = "MM/dd/yyyy";
    Date today = new Date();
    SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(format);
    String todaydate= formatter.format(today);
<input type="hidden" name="today_date" value="<%=todaydate%>" ID=Hidden1>
