This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am trying to take a date and put it into MySQL. I know there are a lot of ways to do this, but I am trying to use Simple Date Format "MM-DD-YYYY". I know how to parse a string and produce a date, but how would I take a date and parse it to a string in the MM-DD-YYYY format?
I've read about toPattern() and applyPattern() . Would either of these be helpful?
Why would you want to convert a Date to a String? If you use a PreparedStatement then you can use the setDate method to work with the Date object directly. No need for any string operations - let JDBC do the work for you.

Because I haven't gotten to "PreparedStatements" on the JavaTrail!
