Timezone is implemented as part of JDK, has nothing to do with the
application servers. I noticed that JDK1.3.0 had problems with timezone for
Sydney (Sydney had special daylight saving in year 2000 due to Olympic). But
JDK1.3.1 had fixed the problem.

Subject: timezone issue

> Hi all,

> In short, Orion does not properly build the right timezone from the system
