In my java project I have inside the WEB-INF folder a text file which contains a date that I generate with a shell file.

In my project I use the last modified time of this file.

The problem is when I export the project and I open the archive file (Web application ARchive), the last modified time of this text file is changed with three hours in addition.

I checked ecplise options, and I don't see how can this happend.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Could have all sorts of wonky reasons.

This is exactly the reason why you should probably not depend on modification times. Why do you need this?

How do you deploy your WAR to another server? It's probably better to update some sort of configuration file or resource bundle during the deployment procedure, because this is a much more reliable method.

First , i execute a bat file which append a date in txt file which is located under WEB-INF folder (the file is been modified with the date and modification time i want).
then i export my project as a War file , and i put it in a Ear file to be deployed after on a server.
The problem is in the war file before even the deploy of the application, after the creation of the war file, when i open it and check the txt file modification time , it's changed , so may be something is happend during the process of exportation, but i don't figure out what it is?
may be you're right , but all what i needed is the time of the creation of the war file (to be displayed after in my jsp file), this idea is simple and that's why i used it.
Thanks.

You didn't actually say how you deploy the application. If this procedure it automated, you can let it generate a deployment time, and use that.
