Ignoring UTC time in Appointment.load

Hi Aspose

Evaluating Aspose.Email for Java 4.3.0, I try to load an ICS file which specifies UTC time into a PST, using the code below;

String pathPSTFileStr = “c:\temp\testPST.pst”;
String testFile = “c:\temp\test.ics”;

PersonalStorage pst = PersonalStorage.create(pathPSTFileStr, 0);
Appointment calDoc = Appointment.load(testFile);
MailMessage calMsg = new MailMessage();
calMsg.addAlternateView(calDoc.requestApointment());
MapiMessage calMapiMsg = MapiMessage.fromMailMessage(calMsg);
FolderInfo calFolder = pst.createPredefinedFolder(“Calendar”, StandardIpmFolder.Appointments);
MapiCalendar mapiCal = (MapiCalendar)calMapiMsg.toMapiMessageItem();
calFolder.addMapiMessageItem(mapiCal);


The ICS file is;

SUMMARY:Test Meeting UTC
DESCRIPTION:This is the description
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR


If I import this ics file into Outlook using the code above, the meeting date/time is not translated from UTC to the local timezone, and it appears in the calendar as 29 July 2014 22:00.

If I import this ics file directly using Outlook, the meeting date/time is translated from UTC to the local timezone, and it appears in the calendar as the correct time 30 July 2014 10:00.

This has been tested on Windows 8.1 & Windows 7, Timezone (UTC+12:00) Coordinated Universal Time+12

Can you please advise what is wrong with the code, or why it does not acknowledge the UTC timezone values?

Thanks

Thanks, although as above it was Email for Java I need it for, not .NET. Will there be a 4.6.0 release for Java with the same fixes?
