the code I have is
Calendar newExpDate = Calendar.getInstance();
request.setAttr(Request.DATA_ENTRY_UPDATE_DATE, newExpDate.getTime() );
When I process this in IE the database is storing the wrong time. Seems to give a 12:XX AM time.
When I process this in Netscape the correct time is stored.
We have not changed any of the code for 2 months.

Hi Diane,
My guess is that the cause is the default time zone used by the JVM (in Micro$oft Internet Explorer). If you haven't already read it, perhaps the JavaWorld article entitled What's your time zone? will help?
Good Luck,
Avi.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
