Hi Experts


I don't know how to parse an int into a date format

I have to format 20061123 into a Date so that the next while statement will work :


try{
            cal.setTime(format.parse("" + "01-Jan-80"));      
            Date endDate = ?????
            
      
            int j=0;
            
            while(cal.getTime().before(endDate)) {
                  if (j==0){
                        test[j] = "All";
                        j++;
                  }else{
                        String text = format.format(cal.getTime());
                      test[j]= text;
                      cal.add(Calendar.DATE, 1);
                      j++;
                        }
                  }
            }catch(ParseException exp){
          }
