REST Service will not deploy to Glassfish (ORA-01882: timezone region not found)

I am attempting to deploy my first Web Application to a newly setup Glassfish Server.  I am able to deploy a basic 'Hello World' app, but when I add a persistence unit (for REST) I get the error below....
Also, I have successfully deployed this Application to other Glassfish servers.

Your oracle connection string is wrong (you do not connect to a TNS listener)
