Solving the UTC problem again and again... (Setting default time zone in JVM)

I the world of weather everything is done according to UTC and this causes problems, time zones always does. Yesterday I was debugging an error (not related to weather) in a Spring/GWT/Hibernate app where we are scheduling things. Everything works perfect in the development and test environments but as soon as it is deployed to EC2 it fails. I had a hunch that this was time zone related (EC2 servers on Ireland).
