Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (ODATA-121) Please clarify whether agents handling DateTimeOffset must preserve the UTC offset

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-121?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Michael Pizzo updated ODATA-121:

       Proposal: Servers *should* preserve offset values, if at all possible. However, where the underlying storage does not support offset servers may be forced to normalize the value to some common timezone (i.e., utc) in which case the result would be returned as utc.  (was: Either:

(1) Specify that the UTC offset must be preserved by agents, or

(2) Rename the type to UtcDateTime.
    Environment: [Proposed]

>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: OData CSDL v1.0

>         Environment: [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Evan Ireland
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: WD01
> The following two DateTimeOffset values identify the same point in time:
> 2012-09-13T15:33:45Z
> 2012-09-13T16:33:45+01:00
> However, it is not clear from the specification if an agent/proxy that is propagating OData documents is required to preserve the actual UTC offset for any given value, or whether it is free to convert between values that represent the same point in time.
> Suggestion: If conversion (preserving the point in time but altering the date/time/offset portions) is permitted, then the data type might more appopriately be named UtcDateTime.
