Assuming date format is MM-dd-yyyy (for eg. 11-28-2013)

You can add following in your code

SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("MM-dd-yyyy");

public Date getCovertedDate() {
      try {
          formatter.parse(this.date);
      } catch (Exception ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
      }
      return null;
}


Make sure to freeze the date format as you will need to specify it with SimteDateFormat.
