Master DST + Time Zone Documentation for Release 11i
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Sep 18, 2007
We had a flurry of postings, patches, webcasts, and Notes around the US 2007 Daylight Saving Time changes earlier this year. As many of you noted, sometimes in rather forceful and colorful terms, it took longer to review all of the available information than it took to apply the patches. We heard you, loud and clear, and are trying to learn from that experience.
New Upcoming DST & Time Zone Changes
The tempest around US 2007 DST changes has settled down by now (thankfully). However, if you're in any of the following countries (or do business with them), there are apparently more Daylight Saving or time zone changes coming soon:
- New Zealand
- Chatham Islands
- New South Wales (Australia)
Information in a Single Place
We've just released a single master Release 11i document to make it easier for you. This Note is intended to consolidate information about the necessary database, Java, and Developer 6i patches that you need to comply with the latest DST and time zone changes across all affected countries for Apps 11i:
- Complying with Daylight Saving Time (DST) and Time Zone Rule Changes in E-Business Suite 11i (Metalink Note 458452.1)
As an aside, my management has yet to be convinced of the merit of my arguments that customers in these countries -- particularly the ones in tropical locations with lots of beaches -- would benefit from a personal on-site visit from me. Oh, well. A man can dream, can't he?
- Additional Updates to US DST Documentation for Apps 11i
- United States & Canada 2007 Daylight Saving Time (DST) Compliance for Oracle E-Business Suite (Metalink Note 403311.1)
