Any idea why I am getting the following error:
java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "2011-09-21T22:30:00Z"

Here is the code snippet:
          String currentTime = "2011-09-21T22:30:00Z"
          DateFormat dfm = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ssZ");
         
          try {
             long a = dfm.parse(currentTime).getTime();
          } catch (Exception e) {
             e.printStackTrace();
          }

Looks like it's the "Z" in the format string. If you put single quotes around that, like with the "T", it works.
