How to Use the "-l" Option for tzupdater Version 2.0 to Update the Java Timezone Database with Changes in DST (Doc ID 1999305.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.1 to 11.1 [Release 11.0]
Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle will no longer provide a new tzupdater tool for every update from the Standards body, ICANN / IANA.  A new "-l" option has been provided in tzupdater version 2.0 which will allow you to update directly from ICANN / IANA as soon as their update is released.  This document is to give example on how to use this new option.
