yes, since this is just a test i can format the return in whatever format i want to....
but i want to return a java util date (this is a test of several remoting mechanism including springs httpinvoker, hessian, burlap and rmi and they all work without any troubles with java.util.Date).
this is more a "i'm sure this is possible; i must be doing something wrong" thing :-)
so how do i return a java.util.Date with axis ? the doco says it's supported but i found this article http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/ws-tip-roundtrip1.html
which says that Date does not roundtrip.
but again since this is just a demo i might swallow my prode and use java.util.Calendar instead :-)
thanks for your help....
