I have an webservice problem.

My WSDL has an entry:

<xs:element name="myLoginDateTime" type="xs:dateTime" minOccurs="0"/>




AXIS has  generated a class which has  property as

private java.util.Calendar myLoginDateTime;




i am setting the myLoginDateTime value from a DB query result like below

java.sql.TimeStamp mylogin=rs.getTimestamp("myLOGIN");
GregorianCalendar cal=new GregorianCalendar();
cal.setTimeInMillis(mylogin.getTime());

System.out.println(cal);---->Line1

Mycustomer.setmyLoginDateTime (cal);



But the webservice response XML has a time difference of approx 3 and 1/2 hours than from printed Line1.


any suggestion ?

Sounds like there might be a timezone difference between the database and the web-service server....have you checked this?   What are locales on the two machines?   (Assuming that they *are* two different machines of course...)

jcoombes:,

i guess like that.

in fact , this question has been asked by one of my  friend . i will  confirm this as soon as i get a response from him.

OK,EVEN  if i assume , web service server has a TIMEZONE set as "GMT+x:y"   and   DB server has a TimeZone set as "GMT+a:b"  

is there a way to  remove this inconsistency ?

do i  need to add the offset ?
If so, whats the extra code need to be to added to  get this discrepancy removed ?

any pointer ?

IRST is +3.30 hrs from GMT..

Hence both timezones are same..

Hence it is clear that Web Server is giving the result in GMT instead of IRST.

To Get the right time, you have to add the GMT offset to the value retrieved...

Calendar obj = Calendar.getInstance();
TimeZone tz = obj.getTimeZone();
int TIMEZONE_OFFSET_VALUE =  tz.getRawOffset() / 1000;

TIMEZONE_OFFSET_VALUE  will give the offset in seconds that you need to use
