Jira issue originally created by user bschussek:

When a DateTime instance, e.g. "2011-02-16 00:00:00 America/New_York" is written into the DB, the timezone is ignored and only "2011-02-16" is persisted. When fetching the date, it is written into a DateTime with the server's timezone, resulting in for example "2011-02-16 00:00:00 Europe/Berlin" which is not correct!

To fix this issue, Doctrine should convert dates to the server's timezone (if their own timezone differs) before persisting them or before executing queries containing DateTime instances.


Comment created by @beberlei:

This would magically change the state of any DateTime instance upon "convertToDatabaseValue", i think this would be equally weird so better no changes at all.
