How to Send Date in Rest API in Post Method

How to send Date in REST API in POST method

You can make your Custom LocalDate Deserializer. This Deserializer will be called when setter method for the LocalDate variable is called.

Steps as follows:

  1. Define a Custom Deserializer

    public class LocalDateDeserializer extends JsonDeserializer<LocalDate>{

    public LocalDate deserialize(JsonParser p, DeserializationContext ctxt)
    throws IOException, JsonProcessingException {

    DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("required format");

    LocalDate localDate = null;
    localDate = LocalDate.parse(p.getText(), formatter);

    return localDate;

Note: Reference for LocalDate.parse method.

  1. Define @JsonDeserialize annotation above the variable

    private LocalDate quantityAtDate;

For using @JsonDeserialize annotation import following:

import com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.annotation.JsonDeserialize;

Hope this helps.

I am sending Date in the request Body to a REST API post request, but on checking the record inserted in the table, Timestamp is getting inserted

I am guessing that, the date stored in your database is 02-AUG-2021 00:00:00 in UTC and 20-AUG-2014 00:00:00 in UTC. Since your timezone is +0530, the time is shown as 02-AUG-2021 05:30:00 and 20-AUG-2014 05:30:00 in Indian Time Zone.

See, If your database has any data type to store only Date like mysql's Date or you can store plain string.

Format Date in response of POST rest API

You have to annotate the field @field:JsonSerialize and not the property.
Beside this you have to use @JsonFormat

data class User(
var email: String? = "",
var lname: String = "",
var fname: String = "",

@field:JsonFormat(pattern = "yyyy-MM-dd")
@field:JsonSerialize(using = LocalDateSerializer::class)
@field:JsonDeserialize(using = LocalDateDeserializer::class)
var birthday: LocalDate? = null

My small test:

val mapper = XmlMapper()
val xml = mapper.writeValueAsString(User(birthday =

Generates the following output:


How to send current date time to Rest Api with put request in react js?

The problem is that you pass a Date object so to fix that you need to convert it to json format like this

new Date().toJSON()

this will return a result like this

console.log(new Date().toJSON())

How to receive and send Date in Spring Rest using JSON?

Found a solution, the problem is the date at Spring is received as "YYYY-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss" so if you want to send it directly into your database you must send in this format or convert it to your database format in the moment you will persist the data.

I do not found an working way to change the format that Spring receives. I just change the format when someone does a GET to receive the information in more friendly format.

For people that like me need date's as ID's for some random reason.

Sending date in a post request from state always returns NULL

In your constructor you are initializing your state twice.

this.state = {
idmedecin: "2",
idpatient: "1",
etat: "1",
date: ""
this.state = { chosenDate: new Date() };

When you use this the second time, your initial value for date becomes null instead of empty string because it is overridden. This makes = null. What you should do is

this.state = {
idmedecin: "2",
idpatient: "1",
etat: "1",
date: ""
chosenDate: new Date()

This will keep the rest of your variables intact. And now instead of null you should see your as an empty string.
