Converting date '0000-00-00' from MySQL to Java

I'm using TOS 4 to extract data from a MySQL database to another MySQL DB.
In the datasource, it seems that some dates are filled with '0000-00-00', which leadds to a problem when the job tries to manipulate data, even if the field is not mapped.
here's the generated error:
Exception in component tMysqlInput_1
java.sql.SQLException: Value '0000-00-00' can not be represented as java.sql.Date
at com.mysql.jdbc.SQLError.createSQLException(

I read some threads about this problem (known as bug in the version 2), I tried to use "zeroDateTimeBehavior=convertToNull" additional parameter, but it seems to be not taken into account.
Please could you help me with this problem?
Here are the TOS and Java versions:
Version: 4.0.2
