In this tutorial you will see an example of a Spring Date Editor.

Spring Date Editor, Spring Date Property Editor

Passing a date format in the bean property is not allowed and in order to do so you need to declare a CustomDateEditor class for converting the String into java.util.Date properties.

Employee.java

package spring.date.property;

import java.util.Date;

public class Employee {

	private Date joiningDate;
	private String name;

	public Date getJoiningDate() {
		return joiningDate;
	}

	public void setJoiningDate(Date joiningDate) {
		this.joiningDate = joiningDate;
	}

	public String getName() {
		return name;
	}

	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}

}

AppMain.java

package spring.date.property;

import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;

public class AppMain {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(
				new String[] { "context.xml" });
		Employee emp = (Employee) context.getBean("bean1");
		System.out.println(emp.getJoiningDate());
	}
}

context.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:aop="http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.0.xsd">

<bean id="dateEditor"
     class="org.springframework.beans.propertyeditors.CustomDateEditor">
 
  <constructor-arg>
    <bean class="java.text.SimpleDateFormat">
      <constructor-arg value="yyyy-MM-dd" />
    </bean>
  </constructor-arg>
  <constructor-arg value="true" />
 
</bean>

  <bean id="bean1" class="spring.date.property.Employee">
    <property name="name" value="Rakesh" />
    <property name="joiningDate" value="1/09/2010" />
  </bean>

</beans>
