Answer

You can pass it from your controller by using java classes like java.util.Date or java.util.GregorianCalendar

Here is simple use for class Date.

Date date = new Date();
date.toString();

what give you String like this.

Here is simple use for class GregorianCalendar.

Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar();
calendar.getTime()

What returns you object with type java.util.Date or you can take what property you want with method get like this

cal.get(Calendar.YEAR);

Convert it to String how you want and than pass to your jsp page.
