There was a problem encountered in our product with chat session and cookies in a web collaboration session between a caller and an agent. <p>

The chat session did not inititate and it failed to open, later we found out that the problem was with the JDK 1.2 which the product was using. <p>

By seeing the logs we found problems with java.util.SimpleTimeZone JDK 1.2 uses. The application is unable to identify the date Feb 29 leap year, when we changed the system date to Mar 01 it started working. So we just wanted to know by moving the JDK 1.3 or higher this problem could be solved. <p>
Basically I want to know if there is a known issue with SimpleTimeZone class. Moreover is the behavior/implementation changed in SimpleTimeZone the JDK 1.2 uses against the one from JDK 1.3 or higher. <p>
Any help greatly appreciated. <p>
Thank you,
Sam Sol

And unfortunately Sam, you also broke a second policy. You posted the same question in two seperate forums, and this forum is for the SCJD certification and your question does not relate to the certification assignment.
So I am going to close this thread.
I think your other thread on the same question will get better responses form the Java In General forum that you posted in.
Good Luck
Mark
