    Date checking problem.

    Hi,

    I have a problem with date checking.

    In my .jsp page it has a HTML form which prompts to enter date and some other fields.

    When the user enter the date into the textbox, I want to check is it a valid date or

    not.

    I'm using MySQL with JSP 1.2 to do this task. According to the MySQL documentation, it

    tells that it recognized the date format as follows.

    YYYY-MM-DD
    YY-MM-DD

    As an example when the user enters the date as follows
    2004-01-31 or 04-01-31 or 4-1-31

    then the db saves as 2004-01-31.

    When the user enters the date as 01-31-2004 or 01-32-2004 this saves as 0000-00-00.

    Now, my problem is how can I check that the user entered the date as correct

    format(year-month-day) and is it a valid date? I also want to check it for leap year.

    Is there any method to do this? If you know to solve this, please tell me.

    Thanks.
