GeoEvent Processor Add Feature - Date Problems Deleting old features

Hi everyone,


I've been working with the GeoEvent processor for the past few days and am trying to establish a historical record of data that's coming in through one of our inputs.  Currently for one of our GeoEvent Services we have two update outputs and a text output that are working flawlessly.  I've been running into major issues with respect to the date field in the Add Feature output. 


At first, the date field in the Add Features output wouldn't populate at all, despite the field's name matching the service object.  I updated the expected date property on the input, and it started working.  It was in the wrong time zone, so I applied a processor to field calculate the date field -25200000 milliseconds to adjust for the time zone we're in, and that was also working.


At 4AM this morning, everything stopped working.  The feature class had hit ~85,000 rows and nothing else had been written.  I had the "delete old features" option enabled, set to twelve hours, (checking every hour) and the features stopped updating when that should have kicked in. 


I reconfigured the environment with a fresh copy of the feature class I was writing to, and made it delete everything an hour old.  It worked for an hour, and then I started getting these messages:


Failed to parse the time value '2015-10-08T19:30:00Z' using the custom format. Using the default date format. java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "2015-10-08T19:30:00Z" at java.text.DateFormat.parse([:1.7.0_65] at com.esri.ges.adapter.json.FeatureJsonInboundAdapter.parseFeature([258:com.esri.ges.framework.adapter.feature-json-adapter:10.3.0] at com.esri.ges.adapter.json.FeatureJsonInboundAdapter.receive([258:com.esri.ges.framework.adapter.feature-json-adapter:10.3.0] at[325:com.esri.ges.manager.internal-streammanager:10.3.0] at$[325:com.esri.ges.manager.internal-streammanager:10.3.0]


After which, not only will the old features no longer be deleted, but no new features will be added to the feature class.  My expected date format is: dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss


Environment is Windows Server 2008R2, ArcGIS Server 10.3, and SDE database is Oracle 11g.


Any advice of things to try would be greatly appreciated, and I'd be happy to provide any further info.  Thank you!
