It would appear to be a ResultSet instance.

It's merely a class typically used to encapsulate the returned data (the result set) of a query, performed on a database for example.

SimpleDateformat sdf = new SimpleDateformat( "dd MMM yyyy" ) ;

Date d = sdf.parse(rs.getTimeStamp("yourDateColumn")) ;

(Should of course be "SimpleDateFormat" instead)

Why are we using the result set? I did not want to have to do it that way. How about right in the getterMethod(). I dont need a yourDateColumn either. I'm using a name in the getter or right in the setter with the date being a String object.
I apologize for my misunderstanding.

Hm, I'm still not 100% clear (sorry, am quite tired :P).

Show me what you've currently got -- I'm sure that'll clarify some things for me.

While in a setter and after getting a field as a result of an sql Select. Take the field in the setter and format it with simpleDateformat to "dd MMM yyy". The getter field should look like "dd MMM yyyy".

public void setTheDate(String string) {
                  
            theDate  = dateFormat.format(string);
}
I'm trying this now.
thank you
