      Description

      Navigate to Main Java DL site:
        http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

      Under the Additional Resources section note the available tzupdater tool:
        JDK DST Timezone Update Tool - 1.3.29

      Click on the "Readme" link below the Download button.
      Takes you to:
        http://java.sun.com/javase/tzupdater_README.html

      In the Introduction section click on the link "Timezone Data Versions in the JRE"
      Takes you to:
        http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/tzdata-versions-138805.html

      The table of versions indicates:

      tzdata2010i 1.4.2_27 5.0u25 6u21 1.3.31

      i.e. version 1.3.31 of the tool includes tzdata that is currently
      available in JDK releases, and we offer 1.3.29

      The policy to date has been to make the DST tool that offers the tzdata integrated in the latest available JDKs the tool version available for download. The current live pages are inconsistent with that policy.
