Try dateStyle="long". The formats are in the JavaDocs (

According to the JavaDocs
* SHORT is completely numeric, such as 12.13.52 or 3:30pm
* MEDIUM is longer, such as Jan 12, 1952
* LONG is longer, such as January 12, 1952 or 3:30:32pm
* FULL is pretty completely specified, such as Tuesday, April 12,
1952 AD or 3:30:42pm PST

so I have used Full.
Now my question is---
Whatever I have done Is it enough or I am missing something to add
in the code?
because I am using type="date" but still I am getting the Time &
date (which is the output of new date()).so that means it is not
converting . Plese help ..
I agree. Here's the link:
