Don't about recommended but...

For the first Struts app using 1.0.2 I wrote, I allowed dates to be input 
into a text box and used java.text.SimpleDateFormat to parse them into 
java.util.Date objects. That worked OK-ish but can inerpret the year in 
some odd ways such as treating -3 as as BC date when it was more likely a 
type of 03. What I do now is input all my dates using option pull-downs 
then simply check the day of month is in range for the month by throwing 
day, month, year at a GregorianCalendar (with setLenient(false) of course).
