Error description

  • When you process the datetime value and the input string does
    not contain a million seconds section, you might see the
    following error:
    
    com.lombardisoftware.core.TeamWorksException: Unparseable
    date:  "2013-11-20T11:19:15-05:"
    
    The date format string must be adjusted with the input
    datetime string.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM Business Process Manager V8.0.1.2       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Usually the input string in XML or      *
    *                      SOAP message for the datetime value     *
    *                      is in the following time zone format:   *
    *                      YYYY-mm-dd HH:MM:SS.fff. For example,   *
    *                      a datetime value could be               *
    *                      2013-11-20T11:19:15.012-05:00.          *
    *                      However, in some case, as in the        *
    *                      following example, the input string     *
    *                      might not contain a million seconds     *
    *                      section:                                *
    *                      2013-11-20T11:19:15-05:00               *
    *                      If the input string does not have a     *
    *                      million seconds section and but         *
    *                      contains the time zone information in   *
    *                      the +/-hh:mm format, for example        *
    *                      2013-11-20T11:19:15-05:00, you          *
    *                      receive the following error:            *
    *                      com.lombardisoftware.core.TeamWorksExce *
    *                      ption: Unparseable date:                *
    *                      "2013-11-20T11:19:15-05:"               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    This error occurs when the input
    string does not have a million
    seconds section but contains the time
    zone information in the +/-hh:mm
    format. When parsing the datetime
    value, the wrong algorithm is used to
    check whether the million seconds
    section is in the string. If the
    million seconds section is not in the
    string, you receive an error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that updates related code so that the
    parser recognizes whether the million seconds section has been
    included when parsing the datetime value and parses the value
    with correct date format, even without million seconds.
