Welcome to JavaRanch!
Take a look at the
class. This converts your String into a Date. Then you can use stmt.setDate() and let Oracle worry about the database format.

You can do it in either way either convery string into Date typoe in
Code or Do it in Oracle.
To do same in oracle,simply you can use to_date function of oracle to covert your string into date type
Syntax is to_date(String,Format)
if you want to insert a date ie 06/12/2004 in dd/mm/yyyy format,
You can do same like this
insert into table_name(Date_column) values(to_date('06/12/2004','dd/mm/yyyy'))
