if (HSSFDateUtil.isCellDateFormatted(cell)) {
// format in form of M/D/YY

cal.setTime(HSSFDateUtil.getJavaDate(num));
cellText = (String.valueOf(cal.get(Calendar.YEAR))).substring(2);
cellText = cal.get(Calendar.MONTH)+1 + “/” +cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH) + “/” +cellText;

Hi Sridhar, here's what I tried..
I used an Excel 2007 format sheet with 6/22/2011 in cell A1 and 15:16:17 in cell B1. Since this is Excel 2007, I used the XSSF classes instead of HSSF.



That gives me the date as Wed Jun 22 03:16:17 GMT+05:30 2011
Hope that helps!
