I think I have something that does this in shared-ldap.  Take a look at this:

   http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/directory/shared/trunk/ldap/src/main/java/org/apache/directory/shared/ldap/util/DateUtils.java?view=markup

Might not be exactly what you like.  Will add these comments to the issue as well.

Stefan Seelmann updated DIRSTUDIO-293:
--------------------------------------

   Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.2.0)
                  1.3.0

Postpone to 1.3.0. We have to create a converter between LDAP timestamp format and Java Date/Calendar format.

> According to RFC4517 3.3.13, the syntax 'Generalized Time' only requires values for 'century', 'year', 'month', 'day' and 'hour' plus the 'g-time-zome' which can be 'Z' or a 'g-differential' ((+/-)hour[minute]) representing a local time zone, so the LDAP browser should be able to interpret those values.
