Reformatting a date field

Reformatting a date field

Reformatting a date field

I have text boxes for the user to enter Start/Stop dates for search criteria in running a report.  I want to have them enter it as mm/dd/yyyy, but I need to reformat it to yyyy/mm/dd to run the report.  Below is the string I create to run the report. It works if I enter the txtStartDate and txtStopDate as yyyy/mm/dd, but I want to be able to enter it as mm/dd/yyyy

String rpt  = "http://naiappl3.noralnm.com/reports/rwservlet";
           rpt += "?Engineering";
           rpt += "&report=Engineering/EngProjects_All.jsp";
           rpt += "&http://naiappl3.noralnm.com/reports/rwservlet";
           rpt += "&destype=cache";
           rpt += "&desformat=PDF";
           rpt += "&paramform=no";
           rpt += "&START_DATE=" + txtStartDate.getText();
           rpt += "&STOP_DATE=" + txtStopDate.getText();

What do I need to do to reformat these fields?
Thanks in advance,  William
