Java Task Scheduling w/ Daylight Savings Time

I'm writing a Java app that needs to run tasks at specified times on certain days (ie Mondays @ 9:00, Weekdays @ 13:00).  I also need to take daylight savings time into account.  To make things harder I also need to keep in mind that this app may eventually be used internationally.

Does anybody know of a good Java scheduling solution?  My requirements in priority order are:
   1) Must take DST into account
   2) Allows scheduling by day of week, weekdays, weekend days, every day
   3) Allows one-shot scheduling
   4) Is international-ready

Thanks.

Most of the schedulers, UNix Cron jobs or utilities like Quartz, will provide you 2) & 3):
About 1) & 4)
All these works on the System date of the Server they are installed on, so if you schedule some thing for 7:00 AM everyday, it will be invoke the tasks whenever the Server System Time is 7:00 AM
