IBM Time Zone Update Utility for Java - Download page

The IBM Time Zone Update Utility for Java (JTZU) applies Daylight Saving Time (DST) changes directly to your Java SDKs and JREs.

Overview

JTZU version 1.6.14e

JTZU updates the time zone information in IBM-supplied releases and service refreshes of the Java™ SDK and JRE. With this tool, you can adopt changes to DST when you are unable to apply a service refresh, or when a service refresh is not yet available that incorporates the time zone changes you need.

JTZU searches your system for IBM SDKs and JREs and updates each one found. The tool works in two modes:

You can use JTZU to update individual Java instances or multiple instances on local or network drives. The update process can be run automatically without user intervention, or you can control which JREs and SDKs are updated. The flexibility built in to the tool means that you can adapt the way it runs to suit your needs. For further information about downloading, installing, and using JTZU, see the Readme file.

JTZU 1.6.14e delivers time zone changes for:

JTZU is supported on AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, Windows, and z/OS. For more detailed information about the platforms supported and the SDKs and JREs discovered and updated by JTZU, see the Readme file.

DST changes can be applied to Java on IBM i systems using the TZUPATCH tool, which is included in the non-z/OS JTZU download package.

JTZU downloads

Before you download the code, read the license.

Platform JTZU download
AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, Windows and IBM i jtzu-1.6.14e.zip
z/OS jtzu-zos-1.6.14e.zip

To see which time zone updates are included for different versions of JTZU, see Olson time zone updates for Java JRE and SDK service refreshes for IBM products

Applying IBM product maintenance that contains earlier time zone data will remove the updates applied by this tool. You must rerun this tool to restore the time zone data to the latest level.

Updates made to Java time zone data by JTZU are not managed by any of the formal change control mechanisms for servicing IBM software products.

Technical support

If you experience a problem using JTZU, check IBM Time Zone Update Utility (JTZU) known problems and diagnostic information. This document describes how to diagnose problems with JTZU and details the information that will be needed by the JTZU support team to help you.

For technical support on JTZU, including questions or feedback, send an e-mail to jtzu@uk.ibm.com. This address is monitored on weekdays during normal working hours. We aim to reply within two working days.

If you have a licence that includes product support, you can also report problems using the standard IBM product support process. You must identify the IBM product being updated when the problem occurs.
