Subject Re: mm/dd/yy format issue (urgent)

I think you may have missed the OP's question.  He's not concerned about 
  mm/dd vs. dd/mm.  Rather, he wants to be able to handle yy and yyyy.

At any rate, Clinton's response presents the appropriate solution.  Only 
the app can know if 09 represent 1909 or 2009, and the app should be 
passing iBatis Date objects, not strings.  To the OP, you'll probably 
use SimpleDateFormat to convert a string to a date.  You'll need to 
instances, one to handle yyyy and the other to handle yy.  If you do 
that, however, be aware that you are agreeing to use SimpleDateFormat's 
decision about what 09 means.

there is no way to consistently work around that.
