Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34316) Z changed from literal to pattern letter for "GMT"
Date Mon, 12 May 2014 06:59:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13994869#comment-13994869

Jeff Spicer commented on FLEX-34316:

zulu time is used by shipping fleets, with a Z at the end.
Excel uses Z for created/modified dates.  probably all Office documents, i'd guess.

I see 14596 is differentiating between Z and ZZ.  maybe ZZZ could be GMT

>                 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
>            Assignee: Justin Mclean
>            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
