I actually have 3 questions with date formats , can someon tell me how to do following

1) I need to display just current month and year on my JSP, like for this month display should be exactly "October, 2004. "  , also i have to display with date at an other place like "October, 10 2004"

2) I get Date as a string in format (MM/DD/YYYY)e.g 10/10/2004. I need to convert it again to just Month and Year format  like October, 2004.

3) Same as question 2, but in this case i get java.util.Date object instead of String.
I think these are easy but i have never worked with dates and formats..
Thanks in advance

You will need to work with the SimpeDateFormat class.
  1) Convert today's date to Month, Year:
       <%
        Date today=new Date();
        SimpleDateFormat format=new SimpleDateFormat('MMMM, yyyy");
        %>
...
        <%-format.format(today);%>
  2) Convert a date string to a date Object (ignoring Day)
       <%
        String dateStr=request.getParameter("enteredDate");
        SimpleDateFormat format=new SimpleDateFormat('MM/xx/yyyy");
        Date date=format.parse(dateStr);
        %>
   3) Ignore day from Date object
       <%
        Date today=new Date();
        SimpleDateFormat format=new SimpleDateFormat('MMMM, yyyy");
        String dateStr format.format(today);    //Convert date to string
        today=format.parse(dateStr);             //Convert String to date
        %>
        OR
       <%
             Date today=new Date();
             Calendar dt=Calendar.newInstance();
             dt.set(Calendar.DAY, 1);   //Set the month to 1st of the month
             dt.clear(Calendar.HOURS);  //Remove the time
             dt.clear(Calendar.MINUTES);
             dt.clear(Calendar.SECONDS);
             dt.clear(Calendar.MILLISECONDS);
             today=dt.getTime();  //Today now is the first of the current month
      %>
