Date serialization reduces one date

Looks like for me the date serialization reduces date by one when it comes to client. example : if i save a date in database Feb 03, when I retrieve it to the client side it is coming as Feb 02, something happening during the rpc call, I am guessing could be date serialization over timezone issue.

Any idea ?

I remember encountering this when I was using GAE with GWT. Are you using GAE as well?

Is the date correct at the server after it is read from the database but before it is sent to the client?
