Extracting date from Timestamp in java

Hi,
java.sql.Timestamp timeStamp;
Currently i am doing timeStamp.toString().split(" ")[0] to extract the date part of the timestamp.
Is there any alternate way. Its surprising that Timestamp itself does not provide any such method.

Thanks

Perhaps.
Date dt = new Date(timeStamp.getTime());

You are probably just as well off using that, since Date is deprecated, but the Timestamp format is not and so the first ten characters can be relied on.
