I have a date that is coming from a model map in a DateTime format and displays as 2010-08-24T01:00:00.000+05:30

I want to dsiplay date in a different format such as 24 August, 2010 .. Is this possible?

Sure, you could use the JSTL formatting tag library to format as you like. For example...

Sorry, was thinking of a java.util.Date, which is what the formatDate tag works with. This will be a little more challenging. One approach I've used for one way formatting (i.e. command to JSP only) is to have a getStringDatetime() method that does the formatting on in the command class. If you need to also bind an entered value back to your DateTime, you'll need to use a property editor.

Hi Mark,

i got a simpler way of doing it. a simple google search got me to joda time api for JSP. It provides date time formatting tags for joda time. Anyways thanks for that reply
 
Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
