Can the ER - Bug 25028617 - BILLABLE CHARGE END DATE ¿ COBOL CODE MAX DATE LIMITATION be reconsidered? The reason is that this is not only a matter of a client specific requirement but rather a technical inconsistency within the product.

The maximum date limit on COBOL, 12-31-4712, derives from a limitation within a very old version of Oracle database (Oracle 7). With Oracle 8 and above the max supported date value is 12-31-9999. We are now on Oracle 12c.
Additionally, it is not consistent for the product to support different max date values for Java and COBOL-based modules within an implementation.
