You are not using the passed in value.

However, you are using the hadrcoded value
Date date1 = sdf.parse("2009-12-31");

Instead you should use it like:
Date date1 = sdf.parse(inpdt));

You need something like the following
PreparedStatement ps = con.prepareQuery("SELECT frmdt, todt FROM mydate WHERE ? BETWEEN frmt AND todt");
ps.setDate(1, java.sql.Date.valueOf("2009-12-31"));
rs = ps.executeQuery();

Open in new window


As guided by the Expert - umartopia , i have changed my code bt stil it does not retrive the string which is to be printed if the input date doesnt lie between the dates present in the database..

From your main class you have passed in the date in wrong format.

String x = objsecDate.funcdatechecker("2000-12-5");

Instead you should pass it like:
String x = objsecDate.funcdatechecker("2000-12-05");

I am giving the input as u suggested ,i also changed my connection string which had a mistake ..now else string that is "date doesnot lie between the range" gets printed even though i have given input as "2000-04-05"
my database contains 2 coloums 'frmdt' and 'todt' having values '2000-2-3' and '2000-7-3' repectively....
(i have also tried by giving input "2000-4-5")

a. you don't need to concern yourself with date formats
b. selecting all dates and then filtering them programatically is unnecessary and inefficient
