I'm writing a program where I need to pass the java.sql.date in the constructor. When I started to test this code, it would not compile because of the format of the date. This is the format that I used:
January 1, 2000 01:01:01.001
The compiler does not like this format. I tried taking out spaces and that didn't work. I shouldn't take out the other symbols, should I? What format should the java.sql.date be in when passed to a constructor.

According to the API docs for 1.5, there is only one constructor of java.sql.Data (that is recommended. There is one that is deprecated). It accepts a long.

I was thinking of doing the following with the date that is passed in:
