The problem happens in 3 different environments, Mac, Ubuntu and Windows Server, all with Java timezone configured as America/Sao_Paulo.

For attributes of date type, conversion errors are thrown when I try to set some specific dates, like 2015/10/18 or 2014/10/19. Those are daylight saving starting dates.

It's possible to reproduce the error using custom or OOTB content model.

More information here https://github.com/JodaOrg/joda-time/issues/146

The provided patch is not a complete fix but rather a stop gap as the assertion prevents the test from passing due to the timezone difference.

A simple way to test and see the problem by using javascript.

var date = Packages.org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.datatype.DefaultTypeConverter.INSTANCE.convert(Packages.java.util.Date, '2015-10-19');print(date);

Is this supposed to be available for Community?
I see here it's fixed for Enterprise.

Do you have any information about when this fix will be available in Community?

This fix will be in the next Community release, which will be in September. We skipped an August release in order to get some more APIs completed.

Douglas Cassiano Rodrigues Paes Do you still see the issue in 201609?

Ancuta Morarasu Am I correctly interpreting the commit history that it got merged back to Trunk in June?

@Richard Esplin I haven't tested it, as I didn't know which version to use.
I'm going to install it and try to test tomorrow.
Thank you for the information.

I couldn't reproduce the error anymore.

I'm going to wait for the new GA, and then I'll schedule an upgrade.

Thank you
