The date is:



Thank you in advance. I think the 'GMT-0500' is what is giving me the problem.

You're right about that. Try the following to see exactly where the parsing fails:
You'll see that it fails at the 00. If you add a : before it it will succeed, and print "Thu Dec 01 06:00:00 CET 2011". In other words, 6 AM CET (GMT+1) equals 0 AM EST (GMT-5).

Ah, thanks. That's what I needed. I took a look at the API and it had that ":" in all of the examples for GMT.

Sorry, I did post this on the Oracle forums. I'll remember that in the future.

Thanks!
