String strDate = "2010-12-01";
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-mm-dd");
Date parsedDate = sdf.parse(strDate);
will, dependend on your locale, produce the following output:
Fri Jan 01 00:12:00 CET 2010
The date is not parsed correctly, since i expect the 1st dec and not the 1st jan.
I know, months are numbered from 0 to 11, so the 12 becomes a 0 for january.
I have several solutions for this problem in mind, but all of them will produce at least 3-4 additional lines of code. So my question is:
What is the nicest way to solve this "problem"?
I can't imagine that it takes more than 2-3 lines to parse a simple date...
