Easy Java Problem for someone - Dates

Hi, I am using the Partner WSDL, and I am trying to get dates out of the MessageElements.

Say I have:

qr = binding.query("select id, firstName, createdDate from Contact");

for (int i = 0; i < qr.getRecords().length; i++) {
SObject con = qr.getRecords()[i];
org.apache.axis.message.MessageElement[] me = con.get_any();
String fName = me[0].getValue();
String createddate = me[1].getValue(); //CAN I GET THE DATE HERE?

For the last line, is there an easy way to get the MessageElement[i] into java.util.Date? (or Calendar or GregorianCalendar)

Thanks for anyone's help

Here is how to convert from iso-8601 to calendar object:

 private void DateTester() {
  String testDate = "2004-07-07T16:26:02.96+08:30";
  org.apache.axis.encoding.ser.CalendarDeserializer cds = new org.apache.axis.encoding.ser.CalendarDeserializer(java.util.Calendar.class, null);
  java.util.Calendar c = (java.util.Calendar)cds.makeValue(testDate);

Awesome, I'll try that out, thanks Dave
