The Week Numbering in Calendar Week View Does Not Conform to ISO8601 (Doc ID 1508601.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Convergence - Version 2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 
In our opinion, the week numbers in the Convergence 2 calendar week view are wrong.
For example, the week containing January 1, 2013 is shown as Week 53, while we expect this to be Week 1.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log in to Convergence 2
  2. Go to the Calendar module
  3. Select the week view
  4. Go to the week containing January 1, 2013

The week is shown as Week 53.

We do not have a problem with Week 53 being displayed under correct circumstances, but we were expecting Convergence would count weeks according the standard ISO 8601, in which case the week with January 1, 2013 would have been Week 1.

Which method is Convergence using to number weeks ? And how can we work around it ?
