Subject [jira] Commented: (BEANUTILS-315) Converter for XML Schema 'dateTime' type
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2008 20:01:44 GMT


Christopher Schultz commented on BEANUTILS-315:

I have identified a possible issue with time zones in this implementation.

It appears that sometimes a date will be rolled back by one hour, but assigned a time zone
that, when taken into account, totally makes sense. Since java.lang.Date objects do not carry
time zone information, it appears that the Date is one hour earlier than it should be.

I'm working on a fix, and will post it if/when I'm satisfied with it.

If there's anyone out there with good date/calendar kung fu, please speak up and give me your

> I have developed a converter implementation that can convert XML Schema 'dateTime' (xs:dateTime)
types into java.util.Date and would like to donate it to the project.
> This Converter is being used with commons-digester successfully in one of my projects,
and a series of posts on the commons-user list led me to believe that commons-beanutils was
an appropriate place to file an enhancement request.
> A proposed implementation is forthcoming.
