I am using J++ and i am using this function
(Timezone.inDaylightTime(Date)) to figure out if the date is in the DST
period. Now that J++ is no longer supported by Microsoft am I going to
need to write my own method that will figure this out since the
assembly will not be updated or does this method use information from
the operating system to figure out the DST dates?

Use a modern Sun implementation. You'll be happy with what they've done
in the last 9 years.
