I have a doubt in date. I am passing date values in mm/dd/yy format and storing it in the database(MSAccess). But when i am displaying it in the screen i want it like this Apr 24, 2001. Can you tell me how can i do this.

Hi Deepa,
Look at java.text.SimpleDateFormat!
Date d = new Date();
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat( "MMM dd, yyyy" );
System.out.println( sdf.format( d ) );

Look up java.text.SimpleDateFormat in the APIs if you want more information and options on formatting dates.
