Error description

  • Date fields values are not displayed in query resultsset if CQ
    Web server is on a non-English OS, example: German. This
    behavior is only on CQWeb client. Date fields values are
    displayed as expected on the query resultset on both Eclipse and
    Windows clients.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1- Install CQWeb server v. 8.0.0.4 on a non English OS; i.e.
    German (Windows and/or Linux)
    2- Add to the DefectTracking schema on the Defect record a date
    field called 'Date'
    3- Modify or submit record(s) to fill in the date field with
    values
    4- Create a query to display the following fields:
    id, Headline, Date
    5- Run the query on the CQWeb client (any browser; IE or FF)
    The query resultset shows only values in the: id and Headline
    fields but empty value in Date column
    see attached screenshots and CQtrace during running the queries
    on both browsers, IE and FF
    
    If resultset is exported, the field value is exported in the
    file. see attached
    If CQWeb on Linux and the date field is included in the table of
    a reference list the following error is shown:
         Unparseable date: 'Do. Mai 31 16:05:48 Mitteleurop?ische
    Sommerzeit 2012'
    
    This was working as expected until 8.0.0.3.
