I installed SQLDeveloper 3 on Windows 7 and trying to connect to the database 10g R2 I get the following error: Ora-01882 timezone region not found. I can access the database from sqlplus, no problem.
I did the following:
in sqldeveloper.conf, I added AddVMOption -Duser,timezone="+02:00"
upgraded Java to Java 6 Update 31
set environment variable TZ to OEZ-02
set environment variable JAVA_OPTS to -Duser.timezone="+02:00"
Nothing helps.
Can you please assist?
Thank you

Sorry, spelling mistake in the previous post, should read:
in sqldeveloper.conf, I added AddVMOption -Duser.timezone="+02:00"

Check out this post:

In there it details how to get the names of the time zones.  It appears that using the names rather than the offsets works better.

Thanks. You sent me in the right direction. Most importantly, it depends on WHERE you put the AddVMOption -Duser.timezone parameter in sqldeveloper.conf. Add it to the end and it will not work.
