For SQL server, I would send the data as ODBC canonical format, which is 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mi:ss' in SQL terms. In Java, you can achieve this format using "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss".

For example:
java.text.Format sdf = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");
String date_for_sql = sdf.format(new java.util.Date("3/12/13 13:00"));

The Date constructor with string parameter is deprecated, but it was an easy way to get my point across. You convert the string you have to a date object in Java, but pass a formatted string to SQL. I just find it easier, but you can use a similar approach to get a java.sql.Date object using valueOf(). The key is to pass date like "2013-06-20".

java.util.Date now=new java.util.Date();
SimpleDateFormat formatter=new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss" );
System.out.println(formatter.format(now));

Use a PreparedStatement ps and call ps.setTimestamp or ps.setDate

As has been stated above by  mwvisa1,java.sql.Date.valueOf can be used, or use java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf

1. you have to convert the string from text box to date. You have to use parse, not format!
see example:

String time = "Sun Jul 15 2012 12:22:00 GMT+03:00 (FLE Daylight Time)";
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE MMM dd yyyy HH:mm:ss zzz");
Date date = sdf.parse(time);
You have only to change the format string, according to your needs, but I'm sure your case is much more simpler :-)

2. You have to use java.sql.Timestamp in order to insert the date into a DB field, which is of type Datetime.
see example here /it's short and easy/ :

Yes, that was just a typo on  mwvisa1's part most probably.  searchsanjaysharma knows which way the conversion is to go, as evidenced by the title of the question
