Subject Re: XmlCalendar to java.util.Date with Julian dates

Not a real problem.  We and XML Schema use "proleptic"
gregorian calendar represenations which doen't take
historical quirks into account.  Java uses a "historical"
calendar.  They're just different, and they're expected to
represent dates differently before 1584.

I think as-is (the way you've described it) is the way it
should be.

Naw, just give'em a plain Date.

with the JDK.


My vote is to leave this aspect of our date handling as-is.
