Hi Naresh,
Thank you for your information first. But,I need your help once again ! 
Now I have a partitional success, the format of Date is korrekt and time
comes with. But client throws an Exception at Deserialization, 
- Could not convert java.util.GregorianCalendar to bean field
'activityDate', type java.util.Date

Hi Christian
There is no mapping in my deployment file for my Date field directly,
because it is a embedded in another type. The entry for that type is as
<> "
<> "

BeanSerializer takes care of the rest. The Transaction class has a getter
and setter for for the Date field. Here's what goes over the wire:
Hope this helps.

Hi Naresh,
I testet it with nightly build version. You are right, that the xsd:type is
now mapped to dateTime, but the Data still contains a String like this
"2002-07-02".  can you please send me your mapping entry in your  deployment
file? I think this is the only position where I coult have made something

I am currently using the nightly build of Axis. It appears that Date is now
correctly mapped to xsd:dateTime. And that is what JAX-RPC specification
asks for. I have found that the conversion to/from Date works fine for this

The bean serializer maps the java Date type to the SOAP "xsd:date" type, 
which doesn't include time information.  I assume this was intentional, 
although I don't particularly like it! 

To send a date-time (xsd:dateTime), the only way I have found is to use the 
Calendar type.  Note however that the time zone information is lost when 
serialized, and when deserialized is assumed to be GMT.  I consider this to 
be a bug, as the serializer should either include time zone information or 
convert it to GMT, depending on what the RPC standard is capable of.  The 
work-around is to make sure you create your Calendar objects in GMT before 
sending them through axis. 

I would prefer it if Date was mapped to xsd:date instead of xsd:dateTime. 
There could be a new class included with the axis distribution to represent 
an xsd:date type in java.
