Subject [jira] [Created] (JCR-3530) Date Properties incorrectly read as "GMT" timezone, should be "UTC"
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 10:16:12 GMT
Jeroen van Erp created JCR-3530:

             Summary: Date Properties incorrectly read as "GMT" timezone, should be "UTC"
                 Key: JCR-3530
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3530
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.6
            Reporter: Jeroen van Erp
            Priority: Minor

When writing a Date in a UTC timezone, the ISO8601 format correctly writes this with the suffix
'Z' indicating Zulu time. However when reading, the ISO8601 format incorrectly changes the
zulu timestamp into the 'GMT' timezone, which is not standard (anymore). This should again
be the 'UTC' timezone.

Though these timezones are used interchangeably, the GMT timezone is no longer precisely defined,
whereas the UTC timezone is.
