5.1.3 Time Zones

JSM services that use date and time values also have an associated time zone.

The default time zone is supplied by the JVM. The Java System property user.timezone can be used to change the JVM's default time zone.

A time zone represents a time offset and daylight savings schedule.

A custom time zone has a time offset and no daylight savings schedule.

The syntax of a custom time zone is:

 

GMT Sign TwoDigitHours : TwoDigitMinutes

 

 Sign: + or -

 Hours: 00 to 23

 Minutes: 00 to 59

 

If you specify an incorrect custom Time Zone ID, then "GMT" is used.

Example

 

GMT-08:00

GMT+10:30 

Australia/Sydney
