Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 1.4.2 to 8
Oracle JRockit - Version R27.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You would like to determine the time zone data version of your Java Runtime Environment.

Note: the tzdata version that ships in any Oracle JRE is documented in the Update Release Notes. However, the actual version can be different from the version mentioned at the Update Release Notes if the Oracle JRE has been patched using tzupdater.
