Dear java experts,
                            I have a situation where i am using the jstl tags to display date.
my code is

<fmt:formatDate value="${test.startTime}" pattern="hh:mm a dd-MMM-yyyy"/>

but if  test.startTime= "01:00 AM 01-Jan-1890",
then i need to display in my jsp  a string like  "BeyondRange"

this is really urgent.

thanks so much,

you'll need to test if the date is within your bounds and display the formatted date if it is, o/wise display your out of bounds message

Hi Testsubbu,

What you need to do is to use <c:if tags. However, it that does not really work, you better consider some of the solution using Servlet such as <% %> within your jsp file.

Hi Testsubbu,

I am not sure that <c:if works on the date format.
