Description:
I need a routine in Java (1.3) to decode a UTC time value which I believe is in Timer tics. The date is in IBM packed decimal. This is a timestamp coming from an IBM mainframe and the documentation is somewhat poor on the exact makeup of the field, but I have a number of samples of both and I know what the date /time "should" be.

Would appreciate some help to decode these fields & create a suitable routine.

Deliverables:
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.



Platform:
Windows, Linux, Java 1.3

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Jan 19, 2003 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.


Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.

I have had to interface IBM main frame systems to process control computers and had to work out many obscure formats, including dates, in my career.

Conversion from packed Julian date is no problem.

Please let me have the examples to confirm I recognise the date format and let me know what format you want to end up with.
