I ve a weird problem while sending date through webservices. whatever date i'm setting is not sent properly. its always 1 day less than the original. Cod eis below with example.

calender = Calendar.getInstance(TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"));

if i print 'objDocHeaderBean.getCreationDate()' its correct (2009-06-30) . but when i send in webservices its one day less than the original (2009-06-29T00:00:00.000+00:00).

Please Help me @ the earliest. I think there is some problem with the UTC thing. Can any1 help me???

Have you checked the serialized message on the wire (ie. the SOAP message, if it is a SOAP web service)?
Is the date correct there or do the error occur when the data is being serialized?
Have you seen the class javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar, which, as far as I know, is more suitable for use with web services? Perhaps giving this class a try can solve your problem.
Best wishes!
I agree. Here's the link:
