configure timezone JDBC driver java


I present an error when executing my code from the persistence which is the following

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" javax.persistence.PersistenceException: Exception [EclipseLink-4002] (Eclipse Persistence Services - 2.5.2.v20140319-9ad6abd): org.eclipse.persistence.exceptions.DatabaseException
Internal Exception: java.sql.SQLException: The server time zone value 'Hora est. Pac?fico, Sudam?ric' is unrecognized or represents more than one time zone.

Where is the time zone configured to solve that problem?
