And it passes in the parse() method that invokes with SimpleDateFormat object and provides a date in the GMT format.

SimpleDateFormat
("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");
  java.util.Calendar cal = Calendar.
getInstance
(new SimpleTimeZone(0"GMT"));
  format.setCalendar(cal);
  java.util.Date date = format.parse("2003-01-25 00:15:30");
