APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • MSK time was moved back 1 hour in 2014
    
    becoming GMT+3 whereas the icu.jar still believes it is GMT+4,
    hence the
    
    additional hour added. When the timezone is set to
    "Europe/Moscow" and
    parsing the date via:
    
    TimeZone.setDefault(TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Moscow"));
    SimpleDateFormat("M/d/yyyy", Locale.ENGLISH).parse("8/13/2017");
    
    results in: "Sat Aug 12 23:00:00 MSK 2017"
    
    expected should be: "Sun Aug 13 00:00:00 MSK 2017"
