Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-3059) Date gets changed for xs:date types
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2007 20:54:50 GMT


Lars Kruse Pedersen commented on AXIS2-3059:

Thanks for the fix, but...
Isn't there supposed to be a colon in the zone offset part, like 02:00, using Z will produce
0200?!? And how do one get a timezone neutral date(without the zone offset part), using GMT
produces +0000...

> I have an attribute of type xs:date in my WSDL and have generated ADBBean objects via
wsdl2java.  This xs:date attribute maps to a DateTime field in our database.  However, our
system only cares about the date part (month, day, year), not the time.  As a result, the
dates are stored with time 00:00:00 in the database.  When querying for this object using
axis2, it moves the day back one day because of the UTC conversion that is done in ConvertUtil.convertToDate(String).
> For instance, the say the date is '2000-01-01 00:00:00' in the database.  The client
is in GMT-5:00 time zone.  What is returned to the client is '1999-12-31 19:00:00'.  Essentially,
it seems the day will always get shifted as per the client time zone by way of the ConvertUtil.convertToString(Date)
method that always assumes GMT (which appends 'Z' to  the serialized date).  It seems to me
that the use of xsd:date is undermined here because the day will get always get shifted back
for any client timezones behind GMT.  I'm not sure if this is a bug or by design but it seems
worth mentioning.
