1) Environment

2) Expected behavior

Client side JavaScript methods getDate() / setDate(...) retrieve/set date of DatePicker component

3) Actual behavior

JS error trown when calling getDate/setDate methods on a DatePicker:
Error: no such method 'getDate' for datePicker widget instance
Error: no such method 'setDate' for datePicker widget instance

4) Steps to reproduce

Assign widgetVar to a datePicker and then try calling setDate(null) and getDate() on it

5) Sample XHTML

<p:datePicker widgetVar="datePicker" />
<p:button onclick="PF('datePicker').setDate(null);return false;" value="Clear DatePicker" />
<p:button onclick="alert(PF('datePicker').getDate());return false;" value="GetDate" />

6) Cause:

setDate/getDate are implemented via _setOption in 0-datepicker.js, but it seems like jQuery is expecting individual setDate/getDate functions to be present.

_setOption: function (key, value) {
if (key === 'setDate') {
this.value = this.parseValue(value);
/* set changes */
this.panel.get(0).innerHTML = this.renderPanelElements();
else if (key === 'getDate') {
return this.value;
