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.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
