String to Date and Time object conversion – Android

By Anish

Converting String object to Date object is common and trivial problem in Android App. The simple solution convert the string to date format then we can make any format

I performed the date conversion below:

String myDate ="28-11-2013"
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MM-yyyy");  
Date mydate = sdf.parse(currentRow.getBoardingDate());

To do the opposite, to convert the date back to a string, you can use the following code:

sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("MMM, dd yyyy");

Here is the SimpleDateFormat Documentation for more details
