Create a SimpleDateFormatObject with the format string in which you are interested. Use that object to parse the string into a Date. Once you have the date object you can use its methods to extract day, month, etc.

I wrote a helper class to help me out with date formats and put it in my utilities project. It's been helpful to have all date/string transformations in one place.
