I don't quite understand this. One of the very first sentences in the javadoc for Date is: As of JDK 1.1, the Calendar class should be used to convert between dates and time fields and the DateFormat class should be used to format and parse date strings.
One of the examples given in the introduction to the DateFormat class is: You can use a DateFormat to parse also.
   myDate = df.parse(myString);

If you don't have the JDK documentation installed on your machine, then please fix this.
Besides, this question has nothing whatsoever to do with servlets and JSPs. If you're reading documentation anyway you might want to read this as well.
