Changing Date Format in OAF(java coding)

 You can change the date format using SimpleDateFormat class

1. Tell the old string format

2. Convert to new String Format

We use two methods to change parse and format. The code is given below

SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(“dd-MMM-yyyy”);   //old format

SimpleDateFormat sdf1 = new SimpleDateFormat(“dd-MM-yyyy”);   //new format

OAMessageStyledTextBean ti=(OAMessageStyledTextBean)webBean.findChildRecursive(“DateFieldItem1”);

String dt=(ti.getValue(pageContext)).toString();   //Getting the date




java.util.Date aj =sdf.parse(dt);                //Changing the String to Date with format

this.dtfor=sdf1.format(aj);                      //Conversion takes place



catch(Exception e)                                         //parse method throws Parse Exception


System.out.println(“Exception Occured”+e);


System.out.println(“Second test for dtfor”+dt+dtfor);
