    Dates in Web Services

    William Conroy Newbie

      I am having trouble using dates in web services. I have the following

      @WebService(name = "EndpointInterface",
       targetNamespace = "http://test.com/test",
       serviceName = "TestWebservice")
      @SOAPBinding(style = SOAPBinding.Style.RPC)
      @Stateless
      public class TestWebservice implements TestWebserviceRemote {
      
       @WebMethod
       public void getData(Date theDate) {
       Logger.getLogger(TestWebservice.class).info("Got Date: " + theDate);
       }
      }
      


      It produces this as the wsdl when I deploy it on 4.0.4.GA with JbossWS 1.0.1

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <definitions name="TestWebservice" targetNamespace="http://skyroad.com/securitiesservice" xmlns:tns="http://skyroad.com/securitiesservice" xmlns:xsd="http:/
      /www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/soap/" xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/">
       <types>
       </types>
       <message name="EndpointInterface_getDataResponse">
       </message>
       <message name="EndpointInterface_getData">
       <part name="Date_1" type="xsd:dateTime"/>
       </message>
       <portType name="EndpointInterface">
       <operation name="getData" parameterOrder="Date_1">
       <input message="tns:EndpointInterface_getData"/>
       <output message="tns:EndpointInterface_getDataResponse"/>
       </operation>
       </portType>
       <binding name="EndpointInterfaceBinding" type="tns:EndpointInterface">
       <soap:binding style="rpc" transport="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/http"/>
       <operation name="getData">
       <soap:operation soapAction=""/>
       <input>
       <soap:body use="literal" namespace="http://skyroad.com/securitiesservice"/>
       </input>
       <output>
       <soap:body use="literal" namespace="http://skyroad.com/securitiesservice"/>
       </output>
       </operation>
       </binding>
       <service name="TestWebservice">
       <port name="EndpointInterfacePort" binding="tns:EndpointInterfaceBinding">
       <soap:address location="http://dlnx07.skyroadtech.com:8080/securitiesServiceWS/TestWebservice"/>
       </port>
       </service>
      </definitions>
      


      When I try to consume the service, the server throws the following exception

      Is there something that I need to do in order for the dates in my request to get parsed correctly? I have looked through the samples, but they are very trivial and dont seem to have dates.
