Archived - About the WebObjects DST Update (WebObjects 5.3.3)

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

This document contains an overview and download information for the WebObjects DST Update. In March 2007, several countries will change the way they observe Daylight Saving Time (DST), including the United States and Canada. Many of the new 2007 time zone and Daylight Saving Time rules for the United States and Canada were anticipated but several other regions only recently adopted time zone and DST changes. 

To address these changes, WebObjects DST is a combined update that addresses issues with the WebObjects supplied date classes using the latest DST and time zone information available as of January 8, 2007 (2007-01-08). You should install these updates even if their computer is not being used in an affected time zone.

WebObjects DST Update upgrades WebObjects components to version 5.3.3.

WebObjects DST Update is formally qualified for the Java 1.4.2 platform. The Java for Mac OS X 10.4, Release 5 updates the JDK 1.4 version on the Tiger. There are no known issues with the WebObjects DST Update on J2SE 5.0 platform on Mac OS X.

Note: AppleCare Enterprise Support customers using earlier versions of WebObjects should contact their support team for information on patch availability.

Important: If you are deploying WebObjects as .war bundles or Single Servlet Directory Deployments, you will need to rebuild with WebObjects DST Update installed and redeploy the application.
