I am using Oracle as the DB. When I fetch any date column from a result set(using getDate() method), I get it displayed in YYYY-MM-DD format. I use the DD-MM-YYYY format to insert into the DB & the inserted date is displayed properly if a select query is done in SQL Plus.

Take a look at the SimpleDateFormat class. You can display the date in any format you want when you get it back.
