      for timezones - "America/Dawson", "America/WhiteHorse" and "Canada/Yukon".

      Currently, a placeholder has been put in place so no failure is seen. But it should be investigated and fixed as the above-mentioned timezones move to MST only on 1 Nov 2020.


      Here is a simple test case :

      import java.util.*;
      import java.lang.*;

      public class Basic {
          public static void main(String args[]) {
              SimpleTimeZone tz = new SimpleTimeZone(-8 * 60 * 60 * 1000, "America/Dawson");
              Calendar cl = new GregorianCalendar(tz, Locale.US);
              cl.set(2020,10,16, 19, 48, 34);
              cl.set(Calendar.MILLISECOND, 584);
              Formatter f = new Formatter(new StringBuilder(), Locale.US);
              f.format("%tZ", cl);
              System.out.println("Short name = " + f.toString());
          }
      }
