I'm configuring the value of the effective date on a Role Request
activity using the following script. Where data_inicio is an information
that is part of the aproval form.

var data = flowdata.get('approval/approval_form/data_inicio');
function setDateTime1() {
var edirFormat = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMddhhmmssZ");
var workflowFormat = new
try {
var tempDate = workflowFormat.parse(data);
} catch (err) {
return err
return edirFormat.format(tempDate);

I'm getting the following error on the server.log.

2009-06-12 22:12:04,002 ERROR

What could be the problem? I understand that it is a date format issue,
but I don't know what is the problem in my configuration.

Thanks in advance for your help.
