Trying to Parse String to Date. I'm getting ParseException.
Calendar timeStamp = Calendar.getInstance(locale);// Date();
			timeStamp.setTime(DateFormat.getDateInstance().parse((String) tokenMap.get("TimeStamp")));

Can you print this value.
tokenMap.get("TimeStamp")

--> Seems to be some problem with this.
