Its well known about the U.S. Daylight Saving Time Changes in 2007. My question is - Does jdk131-b24 has fix for DST 2007 ?
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go !!!

I was wondering if we will get affected even if I am not using the
class. For instance, we do use Calendar,
, etc, however we do not use the
class. Please let me know if we still need to use the patch.

behind the scenes. If you print a Date object to the screen by simply using toString() on it:
Date d = new Date();
then Java will print the date in the current time zone, which might be slightly different in summer or winter. For example, if I run this right now I get:
Fri Jan 12 08:10:53 CET 2007
But when it's summertime, the timezone displayed will be "CEST" instead of "CET". So yes, you could be affected even if you don't use class
directly in your source code.

Daylight saving issue.
JDK build 1.3.1-b24
DST changes 2007
Do the JVM's Calendar/Date objects use the system's tzdata for daylight savings time changes?
All times are in JavaRanch time: GMT-6 in summer, GMT-7 in winter
