Date conversion for timezone 'CEST'

Dear All,


we recently experienced a date conversion problem with Blaze Advisor.


The system is operated in Germany, timezone CET or CEST.

During the operation a date object with the value '01-Jul-2013 12:00:00 AM CEST' was received.

The processing casts this value to a timestamp with the value 'Jun 30, 2013 6:00:00 PM EDT'. The impact is wrongly validated rules and so on.


This fault is only experienced with the timezone 'CEST', works fine with 'CET'.


To fix this issue a wrapper wethode was created, which now performances the cast and afterwards corrects the time difference.


Is there any other solution or experience in handling this?


By the way, we are currently using Blaze Advisor version 6.8.


Thanks and kind regards,
