Hello everyone,
Can some one tell me what do I need to add to this comand:
String date = DateFormat.getDateInstance().format(rs.getDate(1));
in order to get date in the form yyyy-mm-dd ?
P.S rs.getDate(1) returns date as yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.ms

liliya, please take the time to choose the appropriate forum for your questions. This forum is for questions on JSP.

I've moved this topic to the Java in General (intermediate) forum.

getDate does not return the date in any particular format; maybe what you're seeing is what it prints if its toString method is invoked.

A simple way would be to remove everything from the space characters on, i.e. rs.getDate(1).substring(0,10).

Check out the SimpleDateFormat class and apply an appropriate pattern.

If d is of type Date, then:

DateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
String dateString = formatter.format(d);

upper case "MM".
