Steps to reproduce:
1. Download Eclipse IDE from
2. Download "p2 Install Repository" from
3. Start Eclipse IDE and install RTC Client from p2 repository into the
4. Create RTC Repository Connection, connect to a Project Area based on
the default Formal template
5. Create a new Task Work Item
6. Set "Constraint Type" to "Start No Earlier Than"
7. Use the Picker to select a "Constraint Date"
=> Warning "Value is not Valid" is indicated
8. Set Task Summary and try to save the Work Item
=> "Save Work Item" operation fails with message: Attribute
"Constraint Date" not set .
9. If date value is manually set to "May 13, 2016", the warning
=> This indicates that the German language format setting is taken into
account for display, but not for the validation of the value

Environment Details:
- Windows 7 (English) and Language Format set to German
- Eclipse Luna SR2 or Mars.2
- RTC 6.0.1

Thus we cannot add options like -nl or to eclipse.ini by default in order to set the language. The   
client is deployed from a central repository

Since Eclipse Luna SR2 was using below java version ( Oracle) SE Runtime Environment                       

After changing java version in RTC Eclipse client P2, using default IBM supported version in eclipse.ini
 -vm    C:\RTC-Client-Win64-6.0.1\jazz\client\eclipse\jdk\jre\bin                                                                
        to eclipse.ini, the validation problem disappeared.
