Date attribute flex fields without time display as null

ERROR
-----------------------
An error occurs when an XML message is received by SOA Suite that contains a date object (no time) that is then mapped to a data attribute flex field.
The Java API calls to get the task details object will show null for that particular data attribute field. This behavior can also be seen in the Oracle BPM worklist app. The column representing this flex field will be empty in this scenario.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.-Create a composite that takes an XML element of type date as an input parameter
2.-Map that to a flex field
3.-Send in date with the date populated (no time)
