Tomcat & Eclipse: change time zone

I was trying to change timezone of my Tomcat instance started from Eclipse. This turned out to be quite easy. Just go to Run > Run Configurations... and choose Apache Tomcat > Your Tomcat Server and change to tab Arguments. In the VM Arguments section add for example -Duser.timezone=America/Montreal-Duser.timezone=America/Montreal Source: http://www.loria.fr/~szathmar/pmwiki/index.php?n=Liferay.20100204TomcatTimezone
