Date-time in OpenAPI has problems when generating Java code

Hey folks!

I created a Java client using the OpenAPI.json and try to use this from a Java application towards Camunda Run 7.5.2-ee.

For convenience, I stripped the code down and pushed it here: GitHub - berndruecker/camunda-platform-openapi-demo

I get an exception when I deploy a process definition (and it parses the response, respectively the date fields):

Exception in thread "main" org.threeten.bp.format.DateTimeParseException: Text '2021-06-09T16:36:24.807+0200' could not be parsed at index 23

Seems the time zone offset “+0200” is not a valid “date-time” according to Data Types - but it is what Camunda Run returns for me. I deleted all

          "format": "date-time"

from the openapi.json and re-generated, then it works. It seems to be some additional format validation.

Is this a bug and should be fixed? It is a bit annoying as it does not work out to the box.

And as a bonus - the generated test case does not compile without manual fixes:

Thanks!
