by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This Function will Converts a string to a date.

First, I make a table in database named 'dbase' with required fields and values in it and within the reference of mySql(Php Admin).Then i import all the required java package from java library. I made a class named 'MySqlStringToDateFunc' extends the 'HttpServlet'. Then i use serviceMethod() which will bring the request from doGet()Method for Output. Then i load all the drivers for database accessing. After then, i declare variables which are necessary for database conditions like i declare connection(this variable will use to make a link between database and java code or actual code).after then i declare resultset (this variable will use to get the values from desired columns and rows as required from query). The next one will be the preparedStatement (this variable will responsible for the executing query like executeQuery() as (SELECT STR_TO_DATE('21,05,2014','%y,%m,%d') AS str). In the last i used the doGet()Method which will bring the output on the web Browser.

I use here 'Html' code and tags that will present the output in tabular form on the web browser.
