getLastModified() Date format


I called .getLastModified() on an object. It returns “Tue, 01 Jul 2003 11:46:44 GMT”.
The date is always returned in this format(“EEE, DD MMM yyyy hh:mm:ss z”)?

Is possible to change this format?

No it is not possible to change the format as far as I know. The format of the date is per RFC822 (updated in RFC1123).

Hope this helps.

It’s OK then, because I will format it always like this:

String dateString=taminoConnection.retriveXML(String.valueOf(min));			
SimpleDateFormat format=new SimpleDateFormat("EEE, DD MMM yyyy hh:mm:ss z");
ParsePosition pos = new ParsePosition(0);
Date date=format.parse(dateString,pos);
