B] Component

 

    <component>
      <type>info.magnolia.userprofile.UserProfile</type>
      <implementation>info.magnolia.userprofile.UserProfile</implementation>
    </component>

 

Problem: where to place the implementation of the component?

 

Decision

This is a summary of the decisions made on architecture meeting on .

Participants

Users can choose a timezone in their profiles:

  • Browser timezone (show only offset)
  • A custom timezone (list of timezone IDs)
  • We do not provide server timezone option

How we resolve the timezone:

  • We won't introduce a new user profile component 
  • We introduce TimeZone info.mangolia.security.User.getTimeZone() for M5.5
    • Only MgnlUser.getTimeZone() for M5.4
