How are you printing? System.out.println or something else?
Should use Calendar for dates.

You should have stated your problem more clearly. Anyway , submitted date, as you are showing is a perfect java String so you should have no problem in printing it.
Maybe a code snippet will help people to solve your problem

It sounds like you are having trouble extracting the date from your database, this could be to do with the way you are trying to retrieve it.
If you are storing it as a String, you will not be able to retrieve it as a Date. You must store the date as a Date object in your database in order to do this.
Equally if you have stored the date as a String then you should have no trouble extracting it as a String.
Without seeing your code it is difficult to say anymore than this
