From a jsp i submit a date object .In the java code i am getting the date object in this format Wed Dec 03 00:00:00 GMT+05:30 2008.But I need the date object in this format 03-Dec-08. What i have done so far ----- Date date=getDateOfTransaction(); // Get the date obj from the form DateFormat dtformat=new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yy"); String trandate= dtformat.format(date); // In the string output 03-Dec-08 Date dt=(Date)dtformat.parse(trandate); //output of dt Wed Dec 03 00:00:00 GMT+05:30 2008
How can i get only this thing (03-Dec-08) in the date object....
I'm confused. You said you wanted a value like "03-Dec-08", and the code comment indicates that "trandate" has exactly that value. What else are you looking for?
Keep in mind that Date objects have no formatting. You can get any number of formatted string representations in the way you did, but that doesn't change the Date object itself.

Actually this date object is the search criteria .I am using oracle database .In the database the way it is stored is 03-Dec-08.So for matching the date i have to send the date object in the database in this way 03-Dec-08. As it is not matching so the criteria is not satisfied . I am using hibernet query
"from MasterData masterData where masterData.dateOfTransaction like '"+localDate+"'");
And I wonder why you are using like to compare Date Objects. equals(=) should be sufficient.

As I said in my previous post - Date objects have no formatting. You can obtain string representations of Date objects that do have a formatting, and the code you posted before does exactly that. So I'd say you're looking for something that does not exist (and which you don't need anyway, because you already have what you said you needed).
