ABL - JMS API Reference : writeDate procedure

writeDate procedure

Writes a date value as String data to the body of a StreamMessage.


PROCEDURE writeDate.

Applies to

Message objects


*The procedure actually writes value as a DATETIME-TZ value, adding default time and time zone information:
*A time of 12:00AM (midnight)
*The default time zone of the client application
*If the message might be consumed by an application in a different time zone from that of the sending application, the ABL programmer must ensure that the receiving application can interpret the value correctly.
*The format of the DATETIME-TZ value is a subset of the ISO8601 format.
*An error is returned if the Unknown value (?) is specified.
