How to parse a string to Date

Hello,

 

I have String like Wednessday, 13 June 2009 | 12 AM GMT, I want to parse and convert into Date data type. I did same on J2SE, but SimpleDateFormat class does not have parse method in RIM API. 

 

Please suggest.

 

Thanks,

RJ

Hi RJ,

 

You can use the usual JavaScript date parsing routines.

I forgot to mentioned that I need this implementation in BB Apps, If I wanted to write webpage, then this seems to be a proper solution.
