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

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.
