    Default I keep getting an error message but I don't know how to fix this!

    I have to create a simple program that allows the user to input the date in the following format : month day, year and the program is supposed to output the date in this format: date-month-year. My code keeps giving me that my string index is out of bounds but I don't know how to fix it. Help please!
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class UserDate {
    	public static void main (String [] args){
    		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    		String userDate = null;
    		String month = null;
    		String day = null;
    		String year = null;
    		int firstBlank = 0;
    		int comma = 0;
     
     
    		System.out.println("Please enter month day, year in that format");
    		userDate = input.nextLine();
     
    		firstBlank = userDate.indexOf(0,' ');
    		comma = userDate.indexOf(' ', ',');
     
    		month = userDate.substring(0,' ');
    		day = userDate.substring(' ',comma);
    		year = userDate.substring(comma);
     
    		System.out.println(day + "-" + month + "-" + year);
     
    }
    }
    note that the ' ' is supposed to represent a space

    Always include the full text of the error message with your code and question
