n the Date/Time example didnt you check out the following code

    prt("PARSE STRING TO DATE");
     prt("=================================================================");
     Date   newDate;
     String inputDate = "1994-02-14";
     SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
     System.out.print("  " + inputDate + " parses as ");
     try {
         newDate = formatter.parse(inputDate);
         prt(newDate + ".");
     } catch (ParseException e) {
         prt("Unparseable using " + formatter + ".");
     }
