I am getting date from HTML form i.e.

String days=req.getParameter("days");
String months=req.getParameter("months");
String year=req.getParameter("year");

String job_start=days+"-"+months+"-"+year;
String job_end=days1+"-"+months1+"-"+year1;

How can I convert and compare with todays date?

My Code:
=========


What I did is; certainly its wrong aproach as:

1. I am trying to write String instead of java.util.Date
2. I am getting today date with oracle and don't know as to how can in get from Java

Hi!

java.util.Date has many deprecated methods, so I advise you to use java.util.GregorianCalendar.


Take a look in the following link to understand the compare() method: http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/Calendar.html#compareTo%28java.util.Calendar%29

Also notice that if you have the dates represented in String, you can compare them using the equals() method.

Or check out DateFormat and its most-often used subclass SimpleDateFormat.
