Behaviour of parse() method in SimpleDateFormat

Hi All,

I am trying to use SimpleDateFormat to format the date, as in the following code.




The output I get is : 14-Jan-2003. The month is displayed as "Jan" invariably for all the dates.

Any clue, why such a thing is happening, or should parse() method be used more appropriately?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers,
Ram

Lowercase 'm' is for minutes...

Change this...
...to this...
