I am trying to convert a string to Java Date.



java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "2008-04-22T09:00:10.548-06:00"

Any suggestions?

You're parse string should be

2008-04-22T09:00:10.548GMT-06:00
2008-04-22T09:00:10.548Pacific Standard Time-06:00

or something like that.

Go through the SimpleDateFormat documentation. When you get to the Z bit for time zone, the example shown has -0800, not -08:00. It is different if you write z from if you write Z.
