Hi everyone,

This might sound like a trivial problem, I personally never thought I would have a problem parsing dates, but it seems like the SimpleDateFormat class does not like dashes.

SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MM-yyyy");
System.out.println(format.parse("24-09-1976"));

java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "24-09-1976"

at java.text.DateFormat.parse(DateFormat.java:319)

at test.TestMisc.testDateParse(TestMisc.java:12)

at test.TestMisc.main(TestMisc.java:21)

Please help.
