Re: Date Parse SOAP UI Issue?

You aren't paying attention to the solutions provided where there are clear proven solutions. And not even comments by Rupert.

If you have even tried copy and paste, you would have realized the error that is being made.

Any ways, you using YYYY instead of yyyy. And use below

def newDate= Date.parse("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss", '1971-12-28T00:00:00').format('MM/dd/yyyy') newDate

Not sure why the behavior is so strange in Parsing..


I have code like this

//capturing date from response before date parse

def bday =jsonResponse.Demographics.BirthDate "Response date Before Date Parse "+bday

//Parsing the date from response above

def newDate= Date.parse("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss", bday).format('MM/dd/YYYY') "Response Date"+newDate


Output :

Response date Before Date Parse 1971-12-28T00:00:00
Response Date12/28/1972 ---??? WHY IS THIS DATE ADDING A EXTRA year?



You are getting the above output because you are using the wrong date format. MM/dd/yyyy is right way to use. Replace last line with below

def newDate= Date.parse("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss", bday).format('MM/dd/yyyy')
