      Description

      This refers to a suggestion from Adrian at http://markmail.org/message/bldm5eajql4in3yg

      The current OFBiz framework supports a user-selected locale and time
      zone. There are places in the UI where those settings are ignored and
      date/time strings are hard-coded to the yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS format.
      That was a design decision made by the developer community.

      Most of the framework code uses a formatting string constant found in
      UtilDateTime.java:

      public static final String DATE_TIME_FORMAT = "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS";

      If you want to change the date/time format, that would be place to do it.

      It would be best to have those format strings loaded from a properties
      file, so that users like yourself can change it easily - without having
      to modify framework code. Anyone wanting to work on that improvement can
      submit a patch to Jira and I would be happy to review and commit it.
