First of all, let's make one thing clear: java.util.Date has no formatting, other than a simple one for debugging. To format a Date you must turn it into a String.

Let's split your problem into two separate problems:
1) convert 20101203090000 into a Date object
2) convert that Date object into 2010/12/03 09:00:00
One hint: DateFormat.
