Hi to everyone
I'm developing an Android application and I have to parse a date like Fri Oct 07 23:30:00 CEST 2011 and format into a string like Lun 07 Ott 2011 (in italian).
I tried with this:
final DateFormat PARSING_PATTERN = new SimpleDateFormat("E MMM dd kk:mm:ss z yyyy", Locale.US);
final DateFormat FORMATTING_PATTERN = new SimpleDateFormat("E dd MMM yyyy");
String outputDate;
String inputDate= ..........;   //La data nel formato suddetto
try {
       Date date = PARSING_PATTERN.parse(inputDate);
       outputDate = FORMATTING_PATTERN.format(date);
} catch (ParseException e) {
       outputDate = "";

but it throws a ParseException. If I run the same code in a Java project, there's no problem...
Someone can help me?

try this method...

string inputDate=........;
try {
Simple DateFormat FORMATTING_PATTERN= new SimpleDateFormat("YYYY/MM/DD");
Parse Position.Position= new ParsePosition(0);
Date stringToDate = FORMATTING_PATTERN.Parse(inputDate, Position);

catch { }

Hope it will help you....

I solved with this
final DateFormat PARSING_PATTERN = new SimpleDateFormat("E MMM dd kk:mm:ss Z yyyy");
final DateFormat FORMATTING_PATTERN= new SimpleDateFormat("E dd MMMM yyyy", Locale.ITALIAN);
String inputDate = .....;
inputDate.replace("CEST", "+00:00");
String outputDate="";
try {
	Date d= PARSING_PATTERN.parse(data);
	outputDate= FORMATTING_PATTERN.format(d).toString();
catch (ParseException e) {...}
