If first string always in this format,
split first string using split method, and arrange them as per

I would use a regex to determine which format is which: let's call them 1 and 2

boolean formatOne = line.matches(".+-\\d{4}$");
if (formatOne) {
     // Make into formatTwo by splitting and rearranging array
}
