This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I know that request.getParameter("xxx") returns a string. Is there any way to get it to return a java.util.Date??? I would like to get the date from my applet and write it to a database in date format. Maybe I should just write it as a String??? What do you think??? See code from applet to servlet below. Many thanks!!!
No. It always returns a string. You just have to try to convert the returned string to a date. There are some methods in the java.text package that you can use.

Thanks for your help Bosun. My logic was off. I can get the current time within the servlet itself by using the following code: utilDate = new java.util.Date(); long dd = utilDate.getTime(); sqlDate = new java.sql.Date(dd);
I figured it out right after I posted this question. Thanks!!!
