reformatting dates using hibernate

I have a following mapping in hibernate:
<property name="poDate" column="PO_DATE" type="date"  not-null="true" />

Currently if I do this: <c:out value="${po_record.poDate}"/> , the page renders this:  2006-01-31
I'd like it to display this, instead: 01/31/2006

What's the best way to do that?

Thanks, CEHJ, that link was very useful.  I would prefer to do it in hibernate, though, since that field would always need to render that way throughout the app.

just saw your answer to my other question - so you think this one should be handled in jsp as well, even though it will always display the same?
Definitely. The format is a view issue, not a model one. Dates are stored as numbers in the model
