Convert string to Date in JSP

        

Most of the users who use internet are most non- programmers. Whenever such a user pass a date in string format, he is unaware of the fact that the date he has passed has been parsed by the server or not. For parsing the date there is a program written on the server by the server side programmers which converts string to date. To parse a string to a date we use a class named SimpleDateFormat. In the constructor of this class we define the date format we required and ask the user to enter the date in the same format.

The code of the program is given below:

 

 

 

<html>
<head>
<title>Enter the date</title>
</head>
<body>
<form action = "DateFormater.jsp">
<table>
<tr><td>Enter the date :</td> <td><input type = "text" name = "date"></td><tr>
<tr><td><input type = "submit" name = "submit" value = "submit"></td></tr>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

 

<%@ page import = "java.util.Date,java.text.SimpleDateFormat,java.text.ParseException"%>
<%
String dateStr = request.getParameter("date");  
SimpleDateFormat formater = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss");
Date result = formater.parse(dateStr);
out.println(result);
%>

 

The output of the program is given below:
