I am having some problem in java code.

I am getting one string in particular format like "20051010 102533"
this string is in "yyyymmdd HHmmss" format .

now i want this string to convert this Date object.

i am using following approch but it is not giving me expected output.

now i am getting something like TUE 25 JUNE 10:25:33 IST etc ... where as i want the date in following format like "20051010 102533 " .

Is it possible ???

When accessing the Date object it prints in the standard format only. So, if you want it in a specified format convert into String.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us here on the ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. You can change it here
