    Generally the problems we find are not insane; but rather reflects our own mistakes or misunderstandings or insanities.

    For example when its 14th of October in some countries, its the 15th October in other countries.

    You probably are displaying the date as per a timezone which finds itself in a different day to GMT at midnight in Greenwich.

    And there are a lot.

      As suugessted by poojith, you can refer following code to extract just date and not time ..

      // Get Vslue in String

      String startDate = 15...XXXXXX

      // Declare SimpleFomratDate

      SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");

      // Decalre java.util.Date

      Date sDate =dateFormat.parse(startDate);

      // Declare java.sql.Date

      java.sql.Date stDate = null;

      stDate = new java.sql.Date(sDate.getYear(),sDate.getMonth(),sDate.getDate());

    Try getting only the date and not the time. If you are getting this value from an RFC or any other source, then inform them to send the date without the time.

    This will work correctly
