Default modification time stamp. Provides a default value for catalog::TimeStamp and vignette::TimeStamp. If not specified, the server uses 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 – 23.

zzz is a three or four 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 is used instead.


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