APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: N/A
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    JDK outputs incorrect timezone information for following
    timezones.
    
    America/Kentucky/Louisville
    America/Kentucky/Monticello
    

Local fix

  • 1. Use the JVM commandline option -Duser.timezone=<TimeZone>
    Eg: -Duser.timezone=America/Kentucky/Monticello
    
    2. Add the mappings manually in tzmappings file.
    Eg: In tzmappings file add a line similar to
    'America/Kentucky/Monticello America/Kentucky/Monticello'
    

Problem summary

  • Since no OS to Java timezone mappings existed in tzmappings file
    for reported timezones, JDK doesn't retrieve the right timezone
    ID.
    

Problem conclusion

  • JDK has been updated with entries in tzmappings file for the
    reported timezones.
