Error description

  • Error Message: Java displays timezone as GMT+5:30 instead of IST
    for Indian Timezone
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    today: Wed Sep 07 19:13:37 GMT+05:30 2011
    TimeZOne:
    sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo<OSB>id="GMT+05:30",offset=19800000,ds
    tSavings=0,useDaylight=false,transitions=0,lastRule=null<CSB>
    

Local fix

  • -Duser.timezone=Asia/Kolkata
    

Problem summary

  • When the windows registry key field "DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet"
    is set to 1 or when the checkbox "Automatically adjust for
    daylight saving changes" is unchecked in windows "Date and Time
    properties" dialog box, Java displays timezone as GMT+5:30
    instead of IST for Indian timezone leading to display incorrect
    time after date parsing
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR10
    7.0.0 SR1
    .
    The JVM has been updated to assign right value to
    "DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet" based on applicability of DST to a
    particular timezone
    .
    To obtain the fix:
    Install build 20110927 or later
    

Temporary fix
