Subject [jira] [Created] (FLEX-34316) Z changed from literal to pattern letter for "GMT"
Date Sat, 10 May 2014 01:12:08 GMT
Jeff Spicer created FLEX-34316:

             Summary: Z changed from literal to pattern letter for "GMT"
                 Key: FLEX-34316
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34316
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Formatters
    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.12.0
            Reporter: Jeff Spicer
            Priority: Minor

when using the letter Z in a dateFormatter formatString, it's interpreted in SDK 4.12 to mean
the literal string "GMT".

in SDK 4.6, it's interpreted to mean a literal "Z".

This messes with legacy dates that are using the literal letter Z.

formatters saving dates to a server as formatString="YYYY-MM-DD JJ:NN:SSZ" are going to now
save them with a "GMT" on the end, instead of "Z"

I suggest letting both "Z" and "GMT" be literal strings, and wherever possible, don't break
previous versions of the sdk
