Web Services with Domino: Working around the GetValueAsNotesDateTime() bug

I have written about the problem with the XSD_DATE.GetValueAsNotesDateTime() method inside a Web Service in Domino 7. If you use this Method to get the date-value of a xsd:date element, your are in trouble on a non-us server. If the value for the day is smaller then 13, it gets returned as the month value.

This bug has been confirmed to me by IBM as SPR # BHUY76AF26.

Fortunately, there is a workaround until Lotus Quality Engineering releases a fix in one of the next Domino releases:
You can use XSD_DATE.GetValueAsString() to get the string fron the soap-request and parse it yourself.

My demo webservice now looks something like this:


 1 Function GetMonthFromDate(parameter As XSD_DATE) As String
 2     Dim datetime As NotesDateTime
 3     Dim datetime2 As New NotesDateTime("")
 4     Dim dateparts As Variant
 5     
 6     Set datetime = parameter.GetValueAsNotesDateTime()
 7         
 8     Print "XSD_DATE.GetValueAsNotesDateTime not working:"
 9     Print "Date: " & Cstr(datetime.DateOnly)
10     Print "Month: " & Cstr(Month(datetime.DateOnly))
11     Print "————————————————————"
12     Print "Workaround:"
13     dateparts = Split(parameter.GetValueAsString(), "-")
14     datetime2.LSLocalTime =  Datenumber( Cint(dateparts(0)), Cint(dateparts(1)), Cint(dateparts(2) )  )
15     
16     Print "Date: " & Cstr(datetime2.DateOnly)
17     Print "Month: " & Cstr(Month(datetime2.DateOnly))
18     
19     GetMonthFromDate = "Month: " & Cstr(Month(datetime2.DateOnly))
20     
21 End Function
