The BRM Server is configured to show the local time. Similarly AIA also shows the local time.
But due to the property InteractionTimeZone present in the ra.xml of the OracleBRMJCA15Adapter, the time is shown in UTC excluding the Daylight Saving.

Details:
An account gets created in BRM on 31st of October. When the account is billed, In Siebel view the Billing period is from 30th October instead of 31st October.

JCA Adapter is used in communication between AIA and BRM. TimeZoneInteraction is defined as UTC in JCA Adapter.

AIA's recieving the output flist:
