Solving the ORA-01882 error.


You might face a sqldeveloper error while working on a Windows environment related to timezone, installing Oracle sqldeveloper 64bit edition on Windows 7 64 bit.


For accessing an Oracle database you need to have the right tools. Oracle has provided developers with a solid tool (sqldeveloper 3.1), you will face no installation issues but when executing a query, you will get the timezone error.


SQL Server Developer:

Edit this config file: C:\Program Files\sqldeveloper 3\sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf then add this line anywhere in the file:

AddVMOption -Duser.timezone="+02:00" (My time zone)

Oracle Data Modeler

Edit this config file: C:\Program Files\datamodeler 3\datamodeler\bin\datamodeler.conf, then add this line anywhere in the file:

AddVMOption -Duser.timezone="+02:00" (My time zone)
