Timezone.inDaylightTime(Date), DST Changes

    I am using J++ and i am using this function
    (Timezone.inDaylightTime(Date)) to figure out if the date is in the DST
    period. Now that J++ is no longer supported by Microsoft am I going to
    need to write my own method that will figure this out since the
    assembly will not be updated or does this method use information from
    the operating system to figure out the DST dates?

    Use a modern Sun implementation. You'll be happy with what they've done
    in the last 9 years.
