B2Bi application should automatically sync with the system time during DST change, without application re-start

Currently, we are re-cycling the B2B SI application in-order to sync the application time with system time during Daylight Savings (DST). Customer is not happy to bounce the application for time change during DST, re-cyling the application is impacting their business during the down time. It would be more value added if our product have feature like sync with system time automatically without re-cycle during DST.

Here are our current system configurations:

B2B SI version: 5.2.5_17_HF2

OS Version: Sun Solaris

Note: We are going to migrate the existing B2Bi server to 5.2.6_4 on RHEL, so it would be great if the above issue can be fixed in this version as well in our new releases.

Thank You

  • Is a defect
How will this idea be used?

By adding this DST change as a feature in SI, it eliminates human intervention to re-cycle the B2Bi application during Daylight savings Time change. This will also help the customers to avoid unnecessary system down time.
