Hi there,

When I run a verification test, it appears to me that everything is failing...

Is it necessary to run tzupdater against JDK 1.4.2_03?

I'm obviously missing something here.

Thanks in advance

Are you running the verification test after you updated? If you google on tzupdater you should find the Sun documentation that lists version information. The version you mention does not include the time zone updates.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for your response. I have read the documentation for the tzupdater and tzupdater_README.html states the following...

"The TZupdater tool supports JDK/JRE version 1.4.0 and later releases (1.4.0, 1.4.1,1.4.2, 5.0, and 6), all updates of those releases, and on all supported platforms. The java.vendor property value must be "Sun Microsystems Inc"." So unless I'm missing something, I believe that I need to update our JVM as we are utilizing 1.4.2_03.

I'm still wondering what's up.

Okay, maybe I missed the point of the validation test, but I ran tzupdater in update mode which appeared to succeed without errors. After the update finished, I attempted the validation test again; this time it completed without any error messages. Furthermore, a new \jre\bin\zi folder was successfully created and the old/original zi folder successfully renamed to zi.tzdata2003a. Bottom-line, I believe that I am okay.
