I see your point.

For consistency sake, I think it would been better if java.util.Date was used
both for the "client" and the "server" since it is not known if a particular
client would ever need Calendar's functionality. And if it would, it could
convert Dates to Calendars.

My reluctance to deal with Calendar is because we already convert between
util.Date and sql.Date to get the data into db and back. Now we need to deal
with Calendar too ... thousands of records ... not good.

In any case, thanks
