Converting ASN.1 UTCTime to plain format with time-zone support



I need to convert a date/time in ASN.1-DER format (e.g. "110613140245Z") to its plain human readable equivalent, like e.g. (based on the previous example) "2011-06-13 16:02:45 CEST", taking into account the local timezone.


After much browsing of the BB API reference, it seems to me that the BB Java runtime offers no means to achieve my goal in a straight-forward manner.


Can anybody give a hand?

Code samples?

OSS libraries compatible with RIM OS 4.5 and later?

Any hints whatever?
