There is a java aplication running on my windows XP professional client. It apparently uses one of the java functions to get the date from my client PC. The problem is that the time in the application is off by one hour.
I am in the eastern time zone with daylight savings time checked.
If I uncheck daylight savings time the application time is correct.
I am using the latest JRE which seems to include multiple version's of the java webstart which I can see in the registry.
Yes, our application showed an hour difference between what was on screen and what was in the database for the same reason. We gave our Date objects (Calendars?) a custom TimeZone with savings time turned off. If you didn't write this app, I don't know of anything you can do for it. Anyone else?
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
