> I'm troubleshooting [a test failure in Apache Lucene/Sor|https://jenkins.thetaphi.de/job/Lucene-Solr-master-Linux/22799/] "extracting"
contrib that occurs in JDK 11 with locale "ar-EG".  JDK 8 & 9 passes; I don't know about
JDK 10. It has to do with extracting date metadata from a PDF, particularly the created date
but perhaps others too.
> I stepped through the code into Tika and I think I've found out where the troublesome
code is.  First note PDFParser line 271: {{addMetadata(metadata, "created", info.getCreationDate());}}.
 That addMetadata overload variant will call toString on a Date.  IMO that's asking for trouble
since the output of that is Locale-dependent.  I think that's okay to show to a user but not
for machine-to-machine information exchange.  In the case of the test, it yielded this odd
looking date string:
> Thu Nov 13 18:35:51 GMT+٠٥:٠٠ 2008
> I pasted that in and it looks consistent with what I see in IntelliJ and in Jenkins logs;
hopefully will post correctly to JIRA.  The odd part is the hour & minutes relative to
GMT.  I won't be certain until after I click "Create".
> Perhaps this problem is also indicative of a JDK 11 bug?  Nevertheless I think Tika should
avoid calling Date.toString().
