IJ09088: INTRODUCING A NEW PROPERTY FOR TURKEY TIMEZONE FOR PRODUCTS NOT IDENTIFYING TRT
Closed as program error.
Error Message: IBM JDK displays TRT timezone for Turkey, though the same has not been accepted by IANA and Oracle JDK which still display EET as the timezone. This causes issue for products who want historical data (prior to the Turkey TZ change in 2016). Existing display name: Turkey time (TRT) Correct display name: Should be Eastern European Time (EET) or Turkey time (TRT) depending on the product . Stack Trace: N/A .
IBM JDK has changed the short name of Turkey timezone from EET/EEST to TRT as part of constant offset of GMT+0300. However, openJDK decided to stay back the time zone short name as EET and only change the time offset. This can result in compatibility issues when application on IBM JDK communicate to an application on other JDK implementation.
JDK has been updated to provide a fallback mechanism to switch from TRT to EET for Turkey timezone with a property. By default the property is disabled and IBM JDK uses TRT as timezone short name. If application requires EET as timezone short name, use property ibm.legacyTimezone=true. . This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases: 8 SR5 FP25 (188.8.131.52) 7 SR10 FP35 (184.108.40.206) 7 R1 SR4 FP35 (220.127.116.11) 6 R1 SR8 FP75 (18.104.22.168) 6 SR16 FP75 (22.214.171.124) .
