I am trying to update the user form which conatins some date.

Blow line is in JSP page/form:

// this value contatins the proper date with timestamp.


In the User.java which is entity

I have following attribute:




I am using spring MVC,
whenever I try to update the form, particular date column it gets updated with null value.
Can you guess what is the problem it is having?


Thanks in advance.

I beleive you'll need to register a property editor to handle this conversion. In particular, you'll need to register the CustomDateEditor. Theck out the example in the reference doc for one way to do this.
