Hi all,


Please review a fix for Bug Id - HYPERLINK ""JDK-8141243.



Issue - When parsing the virtual timezone "UTC" with java.text.SimpleDateFormat, the timezone is set to the first timezone that matches an actual timezone in the UTC group, which is Antarctica/Troll. When comparing this timezone with the result of TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"), we fail.


Webrev -
