DST Impacts


Testing tip: 03/11/07 through 04/02/07 and 10/29/07 through 11/04/07 are the periods during which the problem is visible. Outside of those periods, there is no visibility since the computation is the right one.

Steps :
  • Download and decompress tzupdater tool in
  • Execute the command:
    {SERVER_ROOT}/bin/base/jre/bin/java -jar {TZUPDATERDIR}/tzupdater.jar -u
Note: To check whether a JRE is patched, execute the command:
  • {SERVER_ROOT}/bin/base/jre/bin/java -jar {TZUPDATERDIR}/tzupdater.jar -t
This will execute tests on the JRE distribution. No output and, exit code 0, means JRE is patched. OS patches need to be applied.
