I recognized some serious date/time problems in Alfresco.
1: Alfresco completely ignores the local timezone. Even when set -Duser.timezone=Europe/Zurich in JAVA_OPTS in catalina.sh, it sets dates always as Zulu (UTC)
2: The informations in: Date and time format | Alfresco Documentation are partially wrong.
These dates are only applicable for fields like Creation Date or Last Modified Date
3: When I make a custom aspekct with a property of type date, it always sets the wrong date from date picker.
I set (iso) 2017-05-10, the CMIS query for that date field shows me 2017-05-09T22:00.00.000Z (see also #2,#1)
which is completely wrong and a huge problem, specially because this date should be furter processed by downstream processes via CMIS.
Can someone from alfresco please take care of all that problems and fix the date/time processing routines in Alfresco?
I know Oracle/Sun made serious bugs the (in the meantime) several date/time apis in Java, specially the last one in Java 8
is a declaration of bankruptcy by Oracle.
Maybe some diffrent java apis are in use by diffrent components which are incompatible.
