Dear All,

I am having the string date value and I want to convert that as java date value by using the SimpleDateFormate. But it is not highlighting the wrong date. for example.


above code is producing the output like Date: Thu Dec 13 00:00:00 IST 2012. I want to identify the incorrect format relevent to dd/MM/yyyy. Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

You can use regular expression or put validation separately for days, month and year.

13/24/2011 is being parsed "leniently", so December + 12 months is December next year.

Have a look through all the classes you are using and see whether they have a setLenient(false) method. See whether that would help.
