I'm wanting to convert a date or gregoriancalendar object to string so that i can insert it as a value into a cookie. I worked that out but I havent worked out how to convert it back from a string into a date or calendar object again. According to my book (which doesnt go into a lot of detail on this topic), I should use DateFormat.parse(String) but its not happening for me!
For example, I tried this:
Date BirthDate = DateFormat.parse(cookie1.getValue());
where the cookie value is a calendar object i converted to a string using the toString method.
