Description

Beginning in 2007, the start and end date of Daylight Savings Time (DST) will change in the United States (see http://aa.usno.navy.mil/faq/docs/daylight_time.html). Daylight Savings Time will begin March 11, 2007 (the second Sunday in March) instead of April 1 (the first Sunday of April). Daylight Savings Time will end November 4, 2007 (the first Sunday of November) instead of October 28 (the last Sunday in October).

Collage's Deploy Agent uses Java technology. To successfully support the 2007 DST changes, the Java software will need to be upgraded (see http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/Intl/USDST/).

IMPORTANT: There may also be operating system patches that need to be applied to the Deploy Agent server. Check with the appropriate vendors for details. Also, if the Deploy Agent is used for database deploys, make sure the appropriate operating system patches are also applied to the database server.


Deploy Agent on Windows:

  1. Stop the Deploy Agent service.
  2. Remove the service by running <Install_Directory>\service\RemoveService.bat.

  5. Click "Download J2SE v 1.3.1_18". NOTE: Download the SDK, not the JRE; Deploy Agent needs the entire SDK to run.
