DMN14 — Clarification on DMN case sensitivity of timezones

  • Key: DMN14-63
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Montera Pty Ltd ( Greg McCreath)
  • Summary:

    DMN spec refers to usage of iana timezones. iana does not specify that timezones are case-sensitive - that is up to the implementation. https://data.iana.org/time-zones/theory.html: re zone naming:

    "Do not use names that differ only in case. Although the reference implementation is case-sensitive, some other implementations are not, and they would mishandle names differing only in case."

    This issue is seeking clarification via the spec as to whether DMN's usage of time zones permits case insensitivity such that "etc/utc" is the same zone as "Etc/UTC" ... or not.
