Date and Calendar issues

Posted by flyfish [send private reply] at July 09, 2002, 05:42:27 PM

hi all,
I am wondering if anyone can give me a suggestion on how to take a String and convert it to a Java Date object? For example if I type in a String 7/4/2002 and I wish to conver it to July/4/2002.
Also if I want to calculate on days borrowed, for example, 7/4/2002 and 7/8/200, will the method getDate() do its trick?

Thanks for your time.

I don't understand your second question, but look at java.util.DateFormat for the first.

Sorry about the confusion of the second question.

I was wondering what method will I use to find the number of days, for example, between January 01, 2000 and January 02, 2002.

Why not write your own. It would be a bit tedious, but not too difficult.
