You shouldn't have any problems with the 7.1 drivers doing what you 
need.  The 7.1 jdbc driver should correctly handle timezones.  The 7.0 
drivers didn't work correctly if the client timezone and server 
timezones were different.

Since 7.1 is still in beta, please test it out and report any bugs you find.
