Web Service Request Interpretation of Timezone and UTC Offset (Doc ID 1544565.1)

Last updated on APRIL 10, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Real-Time Scheduler - Version 1.13.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

After configuring timezones for an Asian region and orders are not being scheduled as expected.  We created a timezone, which is UTC+0700 and assigned the relevant drivers/depots/shift templates, made the necessary shift template changes and Shifts were updated as expected for local time.

We sent this update_stop request to create the order:

 
Notice: <START_TIME>0300</START_TIME><DURATION>0200</DURATION>

We expect this to be scheduled between 10:00-12:00 local time considering 03:00 +0700.  However, the stop is being scheduled between 03:00-05:00 local time.
