      Description

      The documentation for the timestamp() EL Function says:

      It returns the UTC current date and time in W3C format down to the second (YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sZ). I.e.: 1997-07-16T19:20:30.45Z

      https://oozie.apache.org/docs/4.0.1/WorkflowFunctionalSpec.html#a4.2_Expression_Language_Functions

      This is incorrect. It's ISO08601 format in Oozie processing timezone down to the minute (like other Oozie time formats). The Javadoc is even correct:

          /**
           * Return the current datetime in ISO8601 using Oozie processing timezone, yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mmZ. i.e.:
           * 1997-07-16T19:20Z
           *
           * @return the formatted time string.
           */
          public static String timestamp() {
              return DateUtils.formatDateOozieTZ(new Date());
          }
      

      We should update the documentation to match the javadoc
