Look guys, according to sun (http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/Intl/USDST/):

"NOTE: The Java platform's time zone data is completely independent from your operating system's time zone data. Therefore, you do not need to update your operating system for the Java platform to work correctly."

From everything I have read it appears that after 1.4.0, java uses its own internal olson database. It seems to me you might be barking up the wrong tree by looking into utility classes and such... Why not just take a look at what Sun is saying you have to do to fix the problem?
