Subject <s:datetimepicker> 2
Date Thu, 01 May 2008 20:46:24 GMT

In the doc for <s:datetimepicker> it says: "The value sent to the server 
is a locale-independent value, in a hidden
 field as defined by the name attribute. The value will be formatted 
conforming to RFC3 339 (yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss) "

>From my debugging two values are sent to the server. 
        1) dojo.attributeName
        2) attributename

1) is in the RFC format 2) is in the "typed in" format.

This means that the "typed in" format is the one converted and set into my 
object after being procesed by XWorkBasicConverter.doConvertToDate
For a pure date field this conversion code uses the request locale to 
convert the string into a date. 
However because the typed in string is not as per locale (see my previous 
post on <s:datetimepicker> this conversion fails).
If I change the template for the picker and swap the params so that 
"attributeName" actually gets the value in RFC format, the
conversion also fails because this format is not checked for pure date 
fields, only datetime fields.

Can anyone shed some light on this ?
