Date Format incorrectly mapped by parse xml.
I am facing an issue when mapping date values returned from the service to the clipboard.
The connector returns date values in the format "yyyy-mm-dd"
However, after parsing the xml rulethe date value is mapped to a clipboard property in the format "yyyymmdd". As you can see there are no hyphens seperating the days, months and years.
Can anyone please tell me as to why this might be happening.?
Also, when i try to reformat the date value myself to the format "dd-mm-yyyy" by using substring functions and then the function todate(). The date property by default displays the value 19700101 irrespective of what date value is being returned by the service.
Any thoughts on how the above change in date format can be achieved?

Did you try changing to your desired date format to display it ? You can find it under presentation tab in the properties panel of that property and can be changed to customized format by selecting Custom option.
A property of type Date can have a null value. For example, if you use the Property-Set method to set a Date type value from a Text value that is null, the result is null. However, the Java Date operations convert an integer value of 0 to the date 19700101 (January 1, 1970). This Datevalue may result when Pega 7 Platform evaluates expressions that internally use the Java Date operations.
