I am trying to implement a web service that returns a datetime stamp as part of the structured object returned in the response. As noted in another post (http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/59762), there seems to be a problem with the DateTime.parse method in that it does not match the year. Is anyone aware of workaround for this issue? My current idea (a hack, but it seems to work) is to modify the AWS/casting.rb module so that casting of datetime stamp is done by the Time class instead of DateTime. Essentially, I have changed line 106 to read "Time.parse(value.to_s)." This is not a best practice for sure, so I am eagerly in search of another solution. Thanks. Josh

You can use :time data type for your timestamps instead of modifying casting.rb.
