Assume 04 is month and 05 is day.

String x="2007/04/05";
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/dd");
x= sdf.format(sdf.parse(x));

Or maybe what you want to do is to convert 2007/04/05 to 04/05/2007.

Please refer to the code below:
String x = "2007/04/05";
        SimpleDateFormat sdf_from = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/dd");
        SimpleDateFormat sdf_to = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
        x = sdf_to.format(sdf_from.parse(x));
        System.out.println("DateExample.main().." + x);

Jaax,  'm' is for minutes, 'M' for months.
