Hi Caleb

Use the class SimpleDateFormat

Heres the doc with good examples:

Oh i just re-read your question. Where do you get the initial string from?
If your not getting it from a Date object, you might convert it with a custom method
by splitting and re-arranging the string.

Or use two SimpleDateFormat objects - one for parsing into a Date, the other for formatting that Date back into a String.
