Subject: Get Raw Date / Time as a String Using Java
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Domino Server
Technical Area: Application Development
Platform: Windows
Release: 8.5.2
Reproducible: Always

In my form I have a field which contains a list/array of Date/Time Values, which has the following items as an example.

[13/01/2011 00:00:00 ZE8
20/01/2011 00:00:00 ZE8
02/02/2011 00:00:00 ZE8
03/03/2011 00:00:00 ZE8]

When I try and access these raw dates using Java code with the following:

Vector v2 = dataDoc.getItemValueDateTimeArray("OCD_Ship_ETD");

they are being converted (by domino) into the local equivelant such as:

[12/01/2011 16:00:00 GMT
19/01/2011 16:00:00 GMT
01/02/2011 16:00:00 GMT
02/03/2011 16:00:00 GMT]

Is there a way using Java to access the Raw versions of these dates as I would like to output them as a string?

Any help would be appreciated.
