The concept of how to receive updates to the time zone rules. Requirements
- be able to drop in a separate zip/jar file with the rules ?
- be able to update the time zone rules without restarting Java ?
Need to decide if this is in scope, although it is a popular requirement.
One of the great advantages of Joda is that you can rebuild it with the latest time zones very easily. Conversely, the JDK has traditionally required a whole new version download. In November 2006, Western Australia legislated for DST beginning in December 2006. The time zone data needs to be able to be updated within this kind of time frame. -- GrahamLea - 11 Oct 2007
