Parsing date with SimpleDateFormat

 Hi all,

I'm trying to parse the following date string "Fri, 12 Jan 2007
10:00:00 +0100" using SimpleDateFormat. Here is my code :

Date date;
String pubDate = "Fri, 12 Jan 2007 10:00:00 +0100";
SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE, dd MM yyyy
HH:mm:ss zzz");
    date = format.parse(pubDate);
catch(ParseException e) { }

This code raises the ParseException instead of returning the
corresponding date object.

I tried a huge amount of other date formats to create the
SimpleDateFormat but none has worked.

Any guess? Thanks.

Parsing date with SimpleDateFormat

 my dates come in looking like this  "2004-08-04T19:09:02.768Z"

and I parse them like this

SimpleDateFormat dateFormater = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-
Date d = dateFormater.parse(s);

Try creating a Date object and making a string out of it via the date
if what you get is what you expect for input you should be ok, if not
has to be adjusted.

1. Question Regarding the Background Menu

Hi there,

I have a GUI question and hope someone can help me out.

I am trying to make a GUI where I have 3 buttons ( start, about,
exit). What I need is to have a background behind these buttons. For
instance Xgalaga game for android. When you start the game there are 3
buttons and behind them is a background.

in my layout I have a main.xml that has ( LinearLayout, and 3
buttons). I tried to add (@drawable/mybackgorundimage) to background
section of LinearLayout (). Well it works but the image is stretched
out and I know this is not a right way.

Some Extra Questions that came to my mind also:

How many ways are possible to this?

What if the background is an animation?

What is the most efficient way to do this?

I would appreciate if someone provide me with a sample code.
