I'm using ZK 9 and seems that summer time (daylight) is active. When I read some date from database, ZK shows with difference of one day. Can I disable this function? The preferred timeZone is set to GMT-3 at zk.xml

can you provide which component you are using causing this issue? Also what information are you reading from your DB? GMT-3 is an offset-timezone unaware of any daylight savings.

So your code might just do the correct thing and your preferred timeZone is incorrectly set to an offset timezone, and should instead be a named timezone in the form of "America/Halifax" or similar (you forgot to mention your country's timezone).

Hard coding the offset is most likely wrong, even if your country doesn't have DST now, it might have had DST in the past or switch in the future. Causing trouble at past or future dates you are reading from your DB.

I've reconfigured the zk.xml removing the preferred timezone to use the default one. Now all the components are working well. Thank you for your help.
