Date Thu, 10 Jun 2010 06:55:18 GMT


Gerhard commented on AXIS-2673:

I've got the same issue. But currently nobody has the issu assigned and it liees now for 3
years. Is anybody working on it?

>                 Key: AXIS-2673
>                 URL:
>             Project: Axis
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Serialization/Deserialization
>    Affects Versions: 1.4
>            Reporter: Giljo Scaria
> While serializing java.util.Calendar object CalendarSerializer class ignores the Timezone
set in the calendar object.
> It always considers the date object to be in the default timezone.
> Default behaviour of Axis is to convert the date to GMT.But if the passed in date or
calendar object is already in GMT timezone, it should preserve the time as such.
> But  getValueAsString(Object value, SerializationContext context) method in the CalendarSerializer
takes in a parameter of Object type, and then uses  Calendar.getTime()  to get the Date.This
results in creating a new java.util.Date object with default timezone and hence the original
Timeone associated with the Calendar object is lost.
> The issue is that the Date returned by Calendar.getTime() doesn't maintain the calendar's
time zone , and developers at sun says this is by design.
> Axis then formats this date object to GMT and results in incorrect time.
> But the actual Calendar object passed in  was already in GMT.
> Axis should have taken care of checking the Calendar's Timezone and format the date accordingly,
instead of blindly believing it to be in the default TimeZone.
