Joda Hibernate - Illegal instant due to time zone offset transition



I am using joda-time-2.0, joda-hibernate-1.2, Hibernate-3.0. My server application is running in time zone “Europe/Berlin”.

When I try to persist “2011-03-27 02:15:00.000” (Which does not exist in Europe/Berlin time zone) coming from client which is in time zone “GMT”, I get following exception: “Illegal instant due to time zone offset transition: 2011-03-27T01:15:00.000”.

I am using “PersistentLocalDateTime” in my hibernate mappings.

I have to persist the “2011-03-27 02:15:00.000” as it is.


Is there any suggestion or solution of this problem?
