Error description

  • When your business object contains a datetime field and you
    want to serialize the business object to XML data, the
    business object framework uses the GMT time zone. For example,
    if your input datetime is "2014-07-01T00:00:00.000+0200", the
    value in the output XML data will be
    "2014-06-30T22:00:00.000Z", which means that the datetime was
    not output with a specific time zone, such as "GMT+02:00".

    object framework cannot output the datetime field with a
    specific time zone.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V7.5.1.1 that provides a custom
    property for you to specify the output time zone setting. With
    the fix applied, the business object framework serializes the
    datetime field according to the custom property setting.
