Why is it so difficult to map an xsd:date to an "ABAP" date?

Hi All,

I really wanted to just vent my spleen at how annoying BPM is around handling Date values passed from Java / Web Dynpro front end and mapping them as input into an RFC call.

I've seen many recommendations to use an EJB mapping function but I just can't believe that is the only way.  Presently, I'm using a CAF service in between my BPM and RFC due to other historic reasons but due to changes, I'd like to remove this CAF layer to simplify the build.  However, in doing so I hit the issue with converting dates.  So frustrating!

What am I missing?
