Hi Niko

Check this...............


Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar();

// Get the components of the date
int era = cal.get(Calendar.ERA); // 0=BC, 1=AD
int year = cal.get(Calendar.YEAR); // 2002
int month = cal.get(Calendar.MONTH); // 0=Jan, 1=Feb, ...
int day = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH); // 1...
int dayOfWeek = cal.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK); // 1=Sunday,2=Monday, ...


Hope this will solve ur problem

You can use the java.sql.Date class, which maps to the SQL DATE type:

Date sqlDate = new java.sql.Date(new java.util.Date().getTime());

There appears to be many different ways of doing this.


I guess it all depends on what you are doing with your application.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
