GetUserAvailability - Placing standard and daylight savings data in Client request RRS feed

  • Question

  • When i have a client app which is being used in different timezones do i have to pass the daylight savings and standard time settings in from the browser for each request? 

    How can i manage these settings? If i dont set these values correctly (Eg. GMT when european requests arrive and UTC -5 when EST requests come in) the data returned to the user is worthless.

    What techniques are people using when working across timezones? I'm implementing my solution using Java and the EWS wsdl.

    Is it possible to send something like a Unix date string to Exchange which would contain all the information?

    All suggestions welcome

    Thanks in advance.
