I have been inserting log4j entries into a mongodb database and each entry has been given an ISODate timestamp:

"timestamp" : ISODate("2012-01-17T22:30:19.839Z")

To create a mapping for this, I had to manually add the timestamp as Spring Roo did not allow timestamp to be used as it was a reserved word.
So I manually added:

@DateTimeFormat(style="MM/dd/yyyy")
private java.util.Date timestamp;

But I started getting the following error:

Invalid style specification: MM/dd/yyyy

The stack trace for that error was:

To fix this I attempted to add the ISO date format for the @DateTimeFormat

@DateTimeFormat(style="yyyyMMdd'T'HHmmss.SSSZ")
private java.util.Date timestamp;

Which still did not work and had the error.

To resolve this I shitched to use ISO.DATE_TIME as the style:

@DateTimeFormat(iso=ISO.DATE_TIME)
private java.util.Date timestamp;
