How do I convert Date to String?

package org.kodejava.example.util;

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Date;

public class DateToString {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create an instance of SimpleDateFormat used for formatting 
        // the string representation of date (month/day/year)
        DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");

        // Get the date today using Calendar object.
        Date today = Calendar.getInstance().getTime();        
        // Using DateFormat format method we can create a string 
        // representation of a date with the defined format.
        String reportDate = df.format(today);

        // Print what date is today!
        System.out.println("Report Date: " + reportDate);
