Subject [jira] Created: (TRINIDAD-1384) Timezones - date picker popup shows a day before
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2009 12:31:01 GMT
Timezones - date picker popup shows a day before
------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TRINIDAD-1384
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TRINIDAD-1384
             Project: MyFaces Trinidad
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Components
    Affects Versions: 1.0.10-core, 1.2.10-core
         Environment: Server with timezone set to US Eastern Time (GMT-5), client browser
on a machine with timezone set to
Central European Time (GMT+1)
            Reporter: Denis Krukovsky
            Priority: Minor


Steps to reproduce:
 - run a server with timezone set to US Eastern Time (GMT-5).
 - Create a page with Trinidad input date and date picker popup.
 - Query the page from a browser on a machine with timezone set to Central European Time (GMT+1).
 - Enter some date into input date field.
 - Click on datepicker icon.
 - Observe that date rendered as selected in datepicker popup is 1 day before the date entered
into inputdate field.

This behavior gets fixed when we edit trinidad-config.xml and include <time-zone>Etc/GMT-5</time-zone>
(server timezone) there. Unfortunately trinidad-config modification sometimes is not an option
because servers and timezones will change. I tried to supply inputDate component with custom
converter which returns server timezone from getTimeZone() and getFormattingTimeZone(...)
which doesn't help.

I also noted that in both cases - (1) no modification to trinidad-config and the bug is there,
and (2) trinidad-config modified and bug gets fixed - the Trinidad date picker popup is being
requested with equal request string containing something like /app/__ADFv__.jsf?_afPfm=-79d68df7&_t=cd&value=1231891200000&loc=en-US&enc=UTF-8,
i. e. the value parameter is same for both cases but datepicker gets rendered differently.
