Converting Apache2 access log to MXML

Hello!

I am trying to convert my Apache2 access log to MXML, but what ever date format I use, I get the same error:

   Import filter 'Apache 2' initialized.
   Filter import routine invoked in dedicated thread...
   Parsing file 'test3.log'...
+++ERROR: ImportFilter 'Apache 2' has died during import routine.
+++ERROR: Error message was:
+++ERROR: Fatal error in class 'org.processmining.prim.filters.Apache'.
Exception: java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "10/Oct/2000:13:55:36 -0700"
+++ERROR: Fatal error in class 'org.processmining.prim.filters.Apache'.
Exception: java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "10/Oct/2000:13:55:36 -0700"
--- Original exception caught: ---
java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "10/Oct/2000:13:55:36 -0700"
Original stack trace:
parse in java.text.DateFormat (null, line -1)
retrieveLogs in org.processmining.prim.filters.Apache (Apache.java, line 105)
run in org.processmining.prim.util.ImportFilterThread (ImportFilterThread.java, line 87)

   Duration: 3 milliseconds.

For testing purposes I have only one line in my log file:

127.0.0.1 - frank [10/Oct/2000:13:55:36 -0700] "GET /apache_pb.gif HTTP/1.0" 200 2326

Can anybody guess, what the matter is?

    What I could think of is that ProM Import the same date/time notation assumes in the Apache log as your current (Windows) date and time settings.
    You might want to change the Windows locale settings to display dates in the same format as in your Apache log.

    Let us know if this worked!
