Problem Description: When sending complex objects from Flex to CF 2018, and the complex object contains a Date type, and the date value of the member is in Daylight Saving Time, then a "coldfusion.runtime.locale.CFLocaleBase$InvalidDateTimeException" is thrown for "invalid date or time string" from [BlazeDS] . Steps to Reproduce: Use Flex and CF 2018. ColdFusion 2018: Have a CFC with a function which has one parameter of type "Any", parameter is required, and function having access="REMOTE". Flash Builder / Eclipse: In a Flex application, create an object type with one member of type Date. Set the Date member of the object to a date in July, which is within US Daylight Saving Time. Call the CF function using RemoteObject. ColdFusion 2018: In the CF function, read the parameter and member variable and return the string value to the caller of the function. Flash Builder: Eclipse: Run the web page and call the function using a mapped RemoteObject. See https://www.dropbox.com/s/xte4bqrkp7loefi/Remoting%20Test.zip?dl=0 for fully fleshed example. The ZIP file contains an Eclipse / Flash Builder project. The server-side code is in the sub folder named "ADDITIONAL" --> remotingDateTest. Logs of the error, screen shot of a proxy took perusal of the AMF messages, and server Java settings are in the sub folder ADDITIONAL --> README. Actual Result: Error is thrown for DST dates, saying "[BlazeDS] Error deserializing client message. coldfusion.runtime.locale.CFLocaleBase$InvalidDateTimeException: July 8, 2016 6:00:00 PM EDT is an invalid date or time string." Error is Not thrown when date is not with Daylight Saving Time. Expected Result: No error is thrown Any Workarounds: Convert all DST dates to strings before sending to CF.
