             Summary: Enhancement to add utility to convert Date to XMLGregorianCalendar
                 Key: LANG-1246
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1246
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: lang.time.*
            Reporter: Derek C. Ashmore
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.5


I've frequently had a need to convert a Date (java.util) into a XMLGregorianCalendar (javax.xml.datatype).
 This need frequently comes up when coding SOAP Web Service clients.

Specifically, I propose a minor addition to DateUtils as follows:

public static XMLGregorianCalendar toXMLGregorianCalendar (final Date date)

XMLGregorianCalendar has the ability to convert itself to a Date, but not the other way around.

Rather than copy a utility to do this from project to project, I'd prefer the utility be centralized.

A pull request is forthcoming.  Thanks for looking at this.
