Subject basic date field question
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2005 10:34:41 GMT
Hi friends


I'm puzzled with a basic design problem:


I have a VO - say StudentVO - that has a property -> birth_date.


Should the birth_date property be of type String (and then in the DAO
convert it to java.sql.Date)  - 

OR - Should it be of type Date and if so - what kind of Date
(java.util.Date or java.sql.Date - most standard classes like
SimpleDateFormat work with but that means another
conversion to java.sql.Date later in the DAO).


I'm very interested in your opinion


Thanks a lot
