The outcome of the test testLuceneDatasets in src/test/java/org/icatproject/integration/ depends on the local time zone setting. It will succeed if the local time zone is British time (Europe/London) and fail otherwise.

The cause is the following: as more or less all the tests, this test depends on the data imported from src/test/resources/icat.port. In this import file, the third dataset ds3 (having gamma in the description) is set with a startDate and endDate without a time zone indication. As a result, these date values will be taken as local time on import. But the test searches for this dataset within a date intervall from 2014-05-16T05:09:03+0000 to 2014-05-16T05:15:26+0000. If the local time zone during import is different from +01:00 (e.g. BST), the dataset will not match the search condition and the test will fail.

As a fix, this PR adds a time zone indication for this dataset in the test data, making it independent from the local time zone during import.
