Use SimDate or SOMETHING... I REALLY don't think that you want to change the 
system
date... Unless you want to do a FULL reload of the development box...

IBM has finally come out with info on this and they more or less straddle the 
fence
(although my feeling is they still lean against doing this....)

I can't find the URL that I base the above comments on, but try this one for 
info:
