Apologies if this is a bit off-topic as it's specific only to java 

The latest 2010k updates for java are not (yet) freely available from 
Sun. ( )

I have not looked into it, but I assume if I pay I could get the update. 
For Linux there there is a package "tzdata-java" which updates 
/usr/share/javazi/ but this does not used by the Sun JDK.

Anyone know is an alternative to updating the Sun JDK timezones? I can 
of course program something - cases like Egypt changing time for Ramadan 
are fairly rare.
