Daylight Savings Time (DST) date does not work in P8 eForms date cells

Technote (troubleshooting)


If you open an eForm from IBM ECM FileNet P8 Application Engine (AE) Workplace, enter the DST date into a date cell for either summer time or winter time for your timezone and save it, then open the eForm within AE, the previous day appears in the date cell.

For example;
Enter 27/03/2011, and it will appear as 26/03/2011 when you're in a European time zone
Enter 13/03/2011, and it will appear as 12/03/2011 when you're in a US time zone

Resolving the problem

Add eFormsMapDateToGMTNoon=true to the file on your AE


Upgrade to P8 eForms 4.0.2-012
