Issue:
The Development Team has identified a potential date conversion issue when a COM proxy was converted to a dotNET proxy. The issue is a date of 12-30-1899 is being passed in from a non-Gen UI and when using COM proxies the date is convert to '00000000' on z/OS. With dotNET proxies the date is staying as '18991230' on z/OS. 
 
Resolution:
Sustaining Engineering verified that the behavior of the .NET proxy is working as designed. The date should be transferred to the Gen server without any translation/modification.
