[Struts 2.1.8] datetimepicker and action: String or Date ??

I have a problem with the tag datetimepicker, regarding the way it handles the date format.

I am going to switch to a simple textfield tag if datetimepicker is so messy regarding date format and conversion.

Anyways here is the source code again :

---------------- In my JSP (I choose MM/yyyy. It returns a Strign with this format : 2009-11-24T00:00:00+01:00 ) ----------------

<%@ taglib prefix="sx" uri="/struts-dojo-tags" %> ...

<sx:datetimepicker name="expirationDate" key="paiement.dateexpiMois" displayFormat="MM/yyyy" required="true"/>


---------------- In my Action (Notice that I choose a String type for the getter/setter) ----------------

String expirationDate;

public String getExpirationDate() {
return expirationDate;
}

public void setExpirationDate(String expirationDate) {
this.expirationDate = expirationDate;
}


// This method expects a String Date with the format MM/yyyy (but I know it receives a different format : 2009-11-24T00:00:00+01:00)

public static Date stringToDate(String sDate) throws ParseException {

SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/yyyy");
return formatter.parse(sDate);
}


public String payer() throws Exception {


java.util.Date utilDate = stringToDate(getExpirationDate());
System.out.println(" ------------ utilDate : " + utilDate);

java.sql.Date sqlDate = new java.sql.Date(utilDate.getTime());
System.out.println(" ------------ sqlDate : " + sqlDate);


othermethod(sqlDate);

}

---------------- Stack trace (The date I choose is : 11/2009): ----------------

java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "2009-11-24T00:00:00+01:00"
