Subject [jira] [Created] (LANG-763) Reintroduce DateUtils.UTC_TIME_ZONE constant
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 18:30:32 GMT
Reintroduce DateUtils.UTC_TIME_ZONE constant

                 Key: LANG-763
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: lang.time.*
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
            Reporter: Attila Király
            Priority: Minor

In LANG-691 DateUtils.UTC_TIME_ZONE was removed because TimeZone-s are mutable. However it
was a handy constant. So it would be nice if it could be reintroduced in an immutable way.
For example:
- by creating a new static method DateUtils.utcTimeZone() {return TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT");}
- or by creating an immutable timezone type (subclassing maybe SimpleTimeZone)
