Possible datetime deserialization bug





------- Additional Comments From tomj@macromedia.com  2003-07-14 16:02 -------
I am a bit unclear where the bug lies here, but I will say this - Axis send 
date/time stamps in UTC specifically to avoid the timezone issues that are 
being raised.  It is understood that sending it this way 'looses' the 
information about what timezone the time was originally in, but the 
information is still acurrate.  Timezones are strictly for 'display' purposes 
only, relating a UTC time to what part of the world you live in.

I would very much be against changing the serializer to emit datetime in any 
timezone but +0:00.  The deserializer however should understand timezones and 
always do the right thing.

Can you summarize specifically what behavior you want to change in Axis?
