In that case, it is a strick requirement for unit testing to know when you 
throw a good one and when a bad one. In either case you know the expected 
result and should check for it. Throwing a bad date format and detecting it 
is a PASSED.

As said, you can also test for the expected output of a bad format, or am I 
missing something? I have to admit, I haven*t looked at any of this (yet).

Again, the unit test does not find anything related to the logic. It just 
finds if the behavior of a function is not as expected.
