hi, i guess you posted you are in the wrong forum but try
to study the code below which might help you.

import java.util.*;
import java.text.*;

class DisplayDate{

public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-mm-dd").format(new Date()));

Anothet thing whenever you start thinking up about formatting dates then u also end up trying to externalize all ur messages into resource bundles so also look up the internationalization tutorial from sun.

You should start using this especially the MessageFormat class
