Once again, if your messages are XML and you want to manipulate
dateTime types, I suggest you use the standard XPath/XQuery functions.
It's gonna be simpler and probably faster.

Both the XQuery example or the XPath language (with Saxon as a Factory
as support for XPath 2.0 is needed) would do the trick.
