The Oracle ATG Web Commerce date tag converter lets you display Java dates in a variety of formats. For more information about the date tag converter, see Creating Custom Tag Converters in the Working with Forms and Form Handlers chapter.

Some date formats, including Japanese and Chinese dates, include date characters after the month value, but not after the day and year values. You need to supply the date characters in non-Western format dates yourself, using the ‘ (single quote) escape character. For example:

<VALUEOF BEAN="myTest.someDate" date="G yyyy'"X'MMMMd'"X'"></VALUEOF>

where X is the non-Latin character signifying the year and day characters.
