Apache 2007 Daylight Savings Time Question

Product:  Apache Tomcat 4.1
Server:  Windows Server 2003:

As you may be aware, daylight savings time (DST) has been moved from the first Sunday in April to the second Sunday in March (3/11).  I am a manager at a large corporation and I am working with some of our developers to address potential issues with 2007 DST.  Our application is a vendor-purchased application that we purchased about a year ago.  They are using Apache Tomcat 4.1 which is a non-standard product for the company that I work for and there is little knowledge about what is required to ensure that we will not be affected by the 2007 DST change.

My questions are:

1.  Can someone please provide information on what is required to ensure that we are not affected by the 2007 DST change?
2.  It appears that Apache Tomcat 4.1 does not come bundled with its own JRE.  Would we simply need to upgrade the jre that is installed on the server?

For question number 2 one of my developers has mentioned that through some of his research, he has found that Apache uses the JRE that is installed on the server and this JRE communicates with the OS to get date/time information.  We think that upgrading the JRE that is installed on the server and then regression testing the application to ensure we didn't break anything might do the trick.  Since we don't really have any Apache knowledge experts here, your expert assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
