Termination date cannot be removed via XOG by adding a null in the termination date attribute. Earlier releases such as 13.3 allowed it.
Steps to reproduce
- Go to Home > Resources and create a new labor resource.
- Set a termination date (e.g.: 12/31/2016)
- xog out a resource that has a termination date. "rsm_resources_read.xml" template can be used.
- Modify the terminationDate="2016-12-31" attribute to terminationDate="null"
Expected Result: Work the same as in 13.3: the termination date is removed
Actual Result: XOG returns FATAL Error - This record has not been inserted. java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "null" [...]. // The termination date stays unmodified
