Here is my code::

<pre name="code" class="core">
XMLGregorianCalendar xmlCal = null;
try {
xmlCal = DatatypeFactory.newInstance().newXMLGregorianCalendar();
} catch (DatatypeConfigurationException e) {

Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();
// We do a +1 below because XMLGregorianCalendar goes from 1 to 12
// while Calendar.MONTH goes from 0 to 11 !!!
GregorianCalendar c = xmlCal.toGregorianCalendar();
Date fecha = c.getTime();
java.sql.Date fechaSQL = new java.sql.Date(fecha.getTime());

More easy (found on this link):

Date convertedDate = xmlGregorianCalendar.toGregorianCalendar().getTime();
