Hmm, that's strange, it appears JXPath isn't able to do whatever it 
needs to do to create the jxpathPointer (JXPath is still sort of voodoo 
to me ;-) ).  Are you sure the path is correct?  Are you able to save to 
other properties on your bean?

Does the load-form portion work, or are you doing save only?

Maybe try this instead (uses the bean directly rather than jxpath's 

<fb:javascript id="time" path=".">
     var time = new java.sql.Time(widget.getValue().getTime());

Nah, that part should be fine.  The error is happening before the 
javascript is even being executed, while it's setting up the JXPath

Should be right, as long as you're saving directly to your bean.
