    One way: read it into a String using one of the Scanner class's methods.

    Are you asking how to create a Date object from the contents of a String?
    See the SimpleDateFormat class. It's parse method should help.

    NOTE: Java class names start with uppercase letters. date and string are NOT java classes.
