I have a frame which has a textbox , the values of which should be date and should update a date in a MS Access Database.
The date in the Access database is of Date/Time type with Short Date format.
How should I convert the string to date format which can be inserted in the database.

There are some methods you can use in the java.text.DateFormat class.

Use SimpleDateFormat with the pattern using "MM/dd/yy"
SimpleDateFormat myDate = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yy");
