Subject Commons lang parseDate fails to parse ISO8601 date?
Date Thu, 03 Sep 2009 12:32:29 GMT
I cannot see why this is failing but here is my code:

    Date parseDate(String dateStr) {
        Date d = null;
        if (dateStr != null && ! "".equals(dateStr)) {
            try {
                // try to parse the date from ISO8601, general
formats, and RFC-2822
                d = DateUtils.parseDate(dateStr, new String[] {

DateFormatUtils.ISO_DATETIME_TIME_ZONE_FORMAT.getPattern()
                        });
            } catch (ParseException e) {
                // nothing to do
                log.info("Failed to parse: " + dateStr + ":" + e, e);
                d = null;
            }
        }
        return d;
    }

The string I am sending in to that method was generated like this:
String isoDateStr = DateFormatUtils.ISO_DATETIME_TIME_ZONE_FORMAT.format(date);

The exception is:
2009-09-03 13:29:37,644 [399355530@qtp3-2] INFO
search.SOLRSearchService  - Failed to parse:

	at org.steeple.impl.search.SOLRSearchService.execute(SOLRSearchService.java:311)
....

I am open to absolutely any suggestion as I am completely baffled.
