USE DATES NOT STRINGS!!!!

and,

USE FOUR DIGIT YEARS!!!!

Try this
where trunc(SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME) 
 = to_date('07Nov2006'','ddMonyyyy');

Which error you are getting?

Can you please post entire sql statement with single quotes?
They really do matter.

I didn't understand where the single quotes have started and ended.

BETWEEN TO_DATE('" + fromDate + "', 'ddMonyyyy') AND TO_DATE('" + toDate + "', 'ddMonyyyy')

Are you sure we all are speaking Oracle here? Should + (plus) sign, perhaps, be || (double pipe, concatenation operator)?

Post your piece of java code and small test data. Then it is possible to understand the problem

Ooops. Typo. One quote too many.
Should be
where trunc(SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME) 
 = to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy');

Just in case session_start_time is indexed, you can avoid a full table scan with the following

where SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME between  to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy') AND to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy')+ (86366/86400) ...;

In JAVA we r using this string

BETWEEN TO_DATE('" + fromDate + "', 'ddMonyyyy') AND TO_DATE('" + toDate + "', 'ddMonyyyy')

oracle syntax THIS IS CORRECT
select
TO_CHAR(session_START_time,'dd month,yyyy-hh24mi') LOG_IN_TIME,
TO_CHAR(session_END_time,'dd month,yyyy-hh24mi') LOG_OUT_TIME
FROM CATS_USER , SESSION_LOG WHERE
SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME
BETWEEN '01Nov06' AND '06Nov06';
i get data from '01 november ,2006-1021' to '06 november ,2006-1021'
Iam unable to get WITH THIS QUERY
select
TO_CHAR(session_START_time,'dd month,yyyy-hh24mi') LOG_IN_TIME,
TO_CHAR(session_END_time,'dd month,yyyy-hh24mi') LOG_OUT_TIME
FROM CATS_USER , SESSION_LOG WHERE
SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME
BETWEEN '07Nov06' AND '07Nov06';
fromdate '07 november ,2006-1021' todate '07 november ,2006-1021' that is same date

iwant to select fromdate and todate with same date eg
fromdate='07nov2006' and todate='07nov2006'

thanxs

The problem seems to be that your dates in SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME have a time component stored with them, that you're not taking account of in your WHERE clause.

(I'm assuming that when you write "07 november ,2006-1021" you mean "10:21AM on 7th Nov, 2006")

The clause BETWEEN '07Nov06' AND '07Nov06' (which REALLY should be BETWEEN to_Date('07Nov06','ddMonYY') AND to_date('07Nov06','ddMonYY') - you do know that '07Nov06' is a string and not a date, don't you?) will only match one date, and that is TO_DATE('07-Nov-2006 00:00:00','dd-Mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss') ie midnight on the 7th of Nov

If you want to fetch all the columns with a date on the 7th of november you cand do the following (2 of which were suggested in the email just above your last one)
where trunc(SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME) = to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy');
where SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME between  to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy') AND to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy')+ (86366/86400)
where SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME >= to_date('07Nov2006','ddMonyyyy') and SESSION_LOG.SESSION_START_TIME < to_date('08Nov2006','ddMonyyyy')
