Timezone tools

The ITimeZone interface provides clients with the ability to query certain information from the timezone database (a SQLite database accessible via dbc). An OEM can configure the amount of information in the timezone database with the timezone database generation tool, tzdbgen.exe. It is part of the AMSS release with Brew MP at /databases/timezone/bin.

The tool allows a way to configure the amount of timezone data to be inserted into the database. Configuration parameters include whether to generate information for all timezones specified in the Olson database or a subset of the most common timezones and whether to generate timezone transition data for all historical transitions or only since a specified year. See Configuration.
