Date time format Conversion yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss+hh:mm to yyyy-MM-dd hh:MM:ss Z

Hello Geeks,

I have a date time string in the below format
2009-06-15T13:45:30-00:00 – 15th June 2009 1:45:30 PM UTC
I need this to be converted to chicago time. Ex: The above time’s Chicago equivalent is 2009-06-15 06:45:30 CDT

How do I achive this in webMethods?

In short, I need a service, which takes date and time in one of the below formats

yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss+hh:mm or yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss+hh:mm

and returns date time in below format

yyyy-MM-dd hh:MM:ss Z where Z represents time zone like CDT, EDT PDT etc

Help much appreciated.


Hi There,

Check out the folder date in WmPublic package. Refer the built-in services guide for your wM version.

I have a similar issue I’m getting an xs date as input in the following format:


I want to convert this to a string in the following format:

yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm

What format would I need for the inout date string in the ‘FormatDate’ service? I can’t get it to accept any of the formats I’ve tried? (the problem seems to be around the timezone adjustment). I need to make sure that the output date has the timezone adjustment applied to it. Any help appreciated!


another option might be to check out the PSUtilities package from the TechCommunity Downloads.
It has some service which did not yet make it into WmPublic package.


Thanks - I’ll take a look
