Hello,
I'm trying to display a field ( type timestamp) in the form on the browser. This is wut i tried to do:

and then:
out.println("<TR><TD width=150 align = right >");
out.println(" initialized: ");
out.println("/TD");
out.println("<TD align = left >");
out.println("<INPUT type=text name=initialized value="(new SimpleDateFormat("EEE' 'YYYY/mm/dd' 'HH:mm:ss")).format((java.util.Date) +member.initialized + , new StringBuffer(),new FieldPosition(DateFormat.YEAR_FIELD)).toString();">");

Ofcourse, its not working..any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. thanks a lot

I would experiment with SimpleDateFormat outside the servlet environment until I got the desired result. Incidently, a SimpleDateFormat object is fairly expensive to create but can be used repeatedly if you keep it as an instance variable in your servlet. Just synchronize on it to avoid having two requests try to use it at once.
