How to convert date format to milliseconds?

How to get the millisecond time from date? I have the following code.

Date beginupd = new Date(cursor1.getLong(1));

This variable beginupd contains the format

Wed Oct 12 11:55:03 GMT+05:30 2011

Now how to convert this format to the millisecond time in Long datatype?
Any help is highly appreciated and thanks in advance...

long millisecond = beginupd.getTime();

Date.getTime() JavaDoc states:

Returns the number of milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT represented by this Date object.
