First error: You included a spurious . at the end. (You caught this.)

Third error: The sequence you passed to 'map was a java.util.Date, not a string or list like 'map expects.

Second error: Now that seems weird.

I can't help much at this time of day, but what happens when you say "(getTime:new java.util.Date)" and "(idfn!getTime:new java.util.Date)"?

Oh, now that we're talking about it, I seem to remember there's some kind of issue where Jarc allows regular function calls on symbols but 'apply on a symbol doesn't work. So how about (apply 'getTime (list:new java.util.Date))?
