Default modification time stamp. Provides a default value for catalog::TimeStamp and vignette::TimeStamp. If not specified, the server will use the modification date/time of this catalog.ini file.


Date/time value in Java format. Can be either the integer number of milliseconds since midnight, January 1, 1970 UTC/GMT or a date/time string value with one of the following formats:

  • mm/ dd/ yyyy hh: mm: ss zzz

  • mm/ dd/ yyyy hh: mm: ss GMT offset

hh is in the range 0 to 23.

zzz is a 3 or 4 character time zone code such as ‘GMT’ or ‘PST’. Daylight Savings Time must be accounted for in the time zone code (for example, ‘PST’ for Pacific Standard Time, versus ‘PDT’ for Pacific Daylight Savings Time).

offset is a time zone offset in hours or hours:minutes, relative to GMT. For example, ‘PDT’ is equivalent to ‘GMT -7’.

All elements of string formatted date/time values must be present. If the date/time value is not formatted correctly it is ignored and the modification time of the catalog.ini file will be used instead.


If empty or not defined, the server will use the file modification time of this catalog.ini file.
