Hi All I have a date field in my database, which I retrieve. This has to be converted to Calendar type before I present. Can anyone suggest a way to do this. The Calendar.setTime(Date)does not serve my purpose. Thanks
Construct the proper calendar class with the date you retrieve, apu thinks (make an object, then use). The calendar class deprecates the date class (object itself), methinks. Smack apu upside head iffin he wrong. Better answer when Apu has JDK in front of him. Better answer tomorrow......

This statement confuses me, this is how the API's intend for this operation to occur. The code to do this is Calendar c = new GregorianCalendar(); c.setTime(dateIn); c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
This assumes that dateIn is of type java.sql.Date. This will reassign the values of the Calendar refernce to the Gregorian Calendar Object to the dateIn. Note, to assure all the fields in the GregorianCalendar object represent your date, it is necessary to call a get() on the object (This is a bug IMHO but, it's how the GregorianCalendar works so...) I hope this helps
