The readDate call throws an unexpected NullPointerException when the value is null. The documentation does not declare this as the behavior and one should be changed to match the other. See the attached file for the JUnit test file.

Affects: 2.1.2

I presume the exception comes from DateFormat which itself does not declare or document the NullPointerException, so I think it's a bit pedantic to require all its clients to do so. However, we can always improve the Javadocs...
