Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-971) NMSTimestamp returning LocalTime instead of UTC
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2006 21:14:21 GMT
NMSTimestamp returning LocalTime instead of UTC

                 Key: AMQ-971
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: NMS (C# client)
    Affects Versions: incubation
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Rob Lugt
            Priority: Minor

The NMSTimestamp property has been changed from long to DateTime - which is a good thing.
However, the DateTime is currently being adjusted to localtime before being returned to the
client - which is probably not ideal.  The DateTime struct does not contain timezone information,
therefore the programmer has to make some assumption about what timezone the time is expressed
in.  A UTC time is more in-keeping with the JMS specification - which specifies that Timestamp
is a normal Java time i.e. expressed in GMT.  This article from Microsoft also suggests using
UTC as a common time where possible:
