my mysql database stored dates as strings in the format dd/mm/yyyy.

im having problems inserting into the database because the values i want to insert for the date are from a jformattedtextfield with simpledateformat("dd/mm/yy). i get a haunch of errors because of this.

any ideas how to get around this?
