Try This common function for convert date format

public static SimpleDateFormat targetFormat = new SimpleDateFormat();
public static SimpleDateFormat originalFormat = new SimpleDateFormat();
public static String formattedDate = "";

public static String getFormattedDate(String targetPattern,
                                      String existingPattern, String existingValue) {
    formattedDate = existingValue;
    DateFormatSymbols symbols = new DateFormatSymbols(Locale.getDefault());
    symbols.setAmPmStrings(new String[] { "AM", "PM" });
    try {
        formattedDate = targetFormat.format(originalFormat
    } catch (ParseException e) {
        // TODO Auto-generated catch block
    return formattedDate;

and used like

 String txtdate = getFormattedDate("dd MMMM yyyy","yyyy-MM-dd","2016-06-03");
