I have tried with the following code
java.text.DateFormat format = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
java.util.Date mySDate = format.parse(sdate);
java.util.Date myEDate = format.parse(edate);
but it gives me java.text.SimpleDateFormat(unknown) error.
please anyone provide me solution for this.
I don't know whats this error about, but what I thought for this is, You need to make first instance of SimpleDateFormat class which takes "MM-dd-yyyy" format , then parse the date you are receiving as a string, this makes a "Date" object of your format. Once you get the Date from string convert it into "yyyy-MM-dd", using another instance of SimpleDatFormat class..
