Re: the @ syntax - date format

Hey:
Whoops, I sent my previous post direct to you.
It has a "parse" method that returns a Date object that can be used to
construct a Calendar object to get /set any date members you need.
If you are looking for something that can recognize and parse several different
formats in one method call, it doesn't do that. However, you can construct an
object for every allowed pattern and stuff them in a collection of some sort.
Then you can iterate through them until you get one that doesn't throw a
ParseException. Also, you can define your own custom patterns. I have never
needed to do that so I'm not sure how it works.

Maybe missed the earlier parts of your thread.

What are you trying to do? What version of Java are you running?

Cheers,
Glenn
