Dear All,

I have a requirement to format the Timestamp format to another format, could any one explain the steps to do it.

The default timestamp format is yyyy-MM-dd HH:MM:SS

I need to fomrat it to dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS

Please help to do this, and the return type must be always java.sql.TimeStamp.


Thanks in Advance.

java.sql.TimeStamp does not hold any particular format. It just holds the date itself (the values).
If you want to format dates, you can have a look at java.text.SimpleDateFormat.

Christophe is correct. The only way to get hold of a date in a particular format is to use a String for the format.
