I am developing struts appication. I am displaying date in index.jsp as mm/dd/yyyy format. User can enter date in the same format. After Validation i am receiving date in mm/dd/yyyy from user. Now from mm/dd/yyyy i want to capture only month and year as i want to show data from mm/01/yyyy mm/dd/yyyy. Example if user input 10/12/2005 then i need to show data from 10/01/2005 to 10/12/2005 So i want to capture montha dn year what user enters. Can anyone guide me how to get month and year from user input date.
