Date Validator scrolls the date

Hi all,

I'm using Struts Validator for validating date input. When the user enters the date something like 15/15/2004, for expected format MM/dd/yyyy, the date is interpreted as 03/15/2005.

My validation looks like thisI think this happens because of SimpleDateFormat. Has anyone found workarounds for this? One solution that I've thought of, as a last resort, is providing a client side date picker and making the field read-only. But I'd really like to have a solid server-side solution than relying on client-side scripting

Please share your views on this.

Thanks and regards,
Kinjal Sonpal
