Users report they are unable to change JSON format.

For example testing shows the REST Web Service is generating the following JSON code:

Two aspects:
1. "DUE_DATE": "2017-07-22T00:00:00.000+09:00"
2. "DAYS_OVERDUE": {
"@xsi:nil": "true"
}

However Business implementation rules require the following:
1. In UTC Format: "DUE_DATE": "2017-07-22T00:00:00.000Z"
2. "DAYS_OVERDUE": null

Despite changes to the PL/SQL which generates the JSON code, the output does not change.

Consistently the JSON is representing attribute NULL values in below format:

"key": {
"@xsi:nil": "true"
}

The correct representation is:
"key": null
