i am accepting string from html page to my servlet using dopost method. but this is the date my user is entering from the page. i want to insert this date into my database(ms access)where i have defined a field of data type "date/time". the program throws sql exception regarding the mis match of data type. because i have "date/time " in the table and string in the servlet. is their any way by which i can parse the string in to date?? thanks in advance
Good practice requires that you verify that you have a reasonable date in your user's input. Since in order to do that you will have to parse the submission, you will have all the parts to create a date in the format the database wants. Exactly how you do the parsing depends on the format your form asks for. Look at the java.util.Calendar class Bill
