Yeah, I know but there is no single formatter that supports parsing all ISO compliant timestamps. The biggest issue is the time zone options. There „Z“ as well as „+00:00“ and others as well.

Yeah, timezone options are a bit confusing for developers. Before Java 8, I even used to have a special DateUtils class for handling these ugly conversions at one place.
