How to convert java.sql.Date to java.util.Date in dd / mm / yyyy format?


I am storing a date to database by converting util date to sql date by using following code

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
java.sql.Date dobSQLDate = null;
Date date = null;
if(!("").equals(userDob)){date = sdf.parse(userDob);dobSQLDate = new java.sql.Date(date.getTime());}

now I want to show this date on my page in the dd/mm/yyyy format in which it was taken... How do I convert this?

you can use the format method on your SimpleDateFormat object. It takes a java.util.Date object and returns a String formatted based on the format string specified.
