Need Solution/Workaround for Note 947081: SG dates in MMDDYYYY
We are implementing ESS for Singapore. Dates are being shown in MMDDYYYY format - we need DD.MM.YYYY, which is the Singapore standard.
Our large user base all have language EN, country SG.
With reference to Note 947081, dated 07.09.2006, I'd like to enquire if there is a solution or workaround to the limitation given in the Note:
10. Calendar date formatting for Singapore
The calendar date formatting for the locale "en_SG" Singapore is MM/DD/YYYY similar to the US American date format.
This is a feature of the SUN Java JVM. It is not possible, by means of
SAP NetWeaver, to change this behaviour."
SAP informs us there is no update from them overcoming this problem.
Changing the user master for the entire user base is not feasible.
System details: We are running on Unix Server, Java from IBM.
Inconsistencies: Any MESSAGES containing dates from R/3 come in DD.MM.YYYY
From the ESS portal some links point to ITS sub-screens - which are in DD.MM.YYYY
