Problem: In ArcSDE Java API, date values cannot be inserted with PM time
** Fixed at ArcSDE 8.2 **
Inserting a date with a PM time value results in an AM value instead. For example, if the date value has the time set to 3:00 PM, the value 3:00 AM is inserted into the database.
This is a known issue with the ArcSDE 8.1 Java application programming interface (API).
Solution or Workaround
There is no work-around. This problem will be fixed in ArcSDE 8.2.
