xsd:date maps to java.util.Calendar

My schema has an element of type xs:date, which jaxb maps to a java.util.Calendar. If I create a Calendar object with Calendar.getInstance(), it marshalls to “2003-11-24-05:00”.

How can I get it to marshall to just “2003-11-24”?

SOLUTION:
Write a converter class (see MyConverter below) and added an annotation/appinfo to the xml schema, also shown below.

public class MyConverter
{
static final SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
static public String printCalendar(Calendar c)
{
return df.format(c.getTime());
}

static public Calendar parseCalendar(String c) throws ParseException
{
Date d = df.parse(c);
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.setTime(d);
return cal;
}
}




<jaxb:globalBindings
<jaxb:javaType name="java.util.Calendar" xmlType="xsd:date"
printMethod="MyConverter.printCalendar"
parseMethod="MyConverter.parseCalendar"
/>
