Hi All,

In my application, there is a column in a database view called "date of birth" whose datatype is "date". I am retrieving the date of birth field from the database view on to the JSP screen but somehow, the date format "Mon Nov 24 00:00:00 EST 2008" is being displayed on JSP screen.

Please someone let me know how to convert this pattern "Mon Nov 24 00:00:00 EST 2008" to "dd/MM/yyyy" (24/11/2008) pattern?

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
Shyam Kasthala

You should have a look at the SimpleDateFormat class - which can take a java.util.Date and transform it to a String date defined with a pattern.

You can also use the JSTL <fmt:formatDate> tag to format dates.

The "pattern" attribute takes a format string which shares the same rules as SimpleDateFormat.
