Use java.text.SimpleDateFormat. It can parse the date string, lets you interact with it as data, and helps you reformat it if you need.
Note it's relatively slow because of its complex internals. If your dates are always in the exact same simple format like you showed, and you need to parse a huge number of them, a simple custom parser based on character positions can be much faster.
