I thought that the timezone had nothing to do with Orion, too. But when I run the same code in a standalone application (i.e. not loading the class within Orion), I get a correct behaviour. And I'm using the same VM.
So, the standalone app yields a timezone w/ DST and a class within Orion yields a TZ wo/ DST. Weird. Any idea ? regards, Pierre At 09:47 23.04.2002 +1000, you wrote: >ello, > >Timezone is implemented as part of JDK, has nothing to do with the >application servers.
