Hi All,
I am working on the project which actually uses java not in presentation layer but in all other layers of project. In our presentation layer we are using flex. My question is very simple. I want to retrive the records from the database based on date.
From presentation layer , I am getting the date in the format

I want to convert the date of this format to the format that SQL Server 2000 can understand by using some date functions. I will appreciate if some can help me in this regard.
