Please try the below


Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT"));





It is not working.

In AbstractComponent class there is no method like -->  setProperty(string, calendar). 

I have created new one but no luck.

public void setDateProperty(String name, Calendar calendar) {



API :  com.adobe.cq.testing.client.ComponentClient;

Thanks in advance.
