    public static void main(String[] args)
        // Parse an XSD dateTime to create a DateTime object.
        String xsdDateTime = "2003-02-04T13:58:59.9999999+03:00";
        DateTime dateTime = SoapDateTime.Parse(xsdDateTime);
        // Serialize a DateTime object as an XSD dateTime string.
        Console.WriteLine("The date in XSD format is {0}.", 
        // Print the XSD type string of the SoapDateTime class.
        Console.WriteLine("The XSD type of SoapDateTime is {0}.", 
    } //main
