You can use DateFormat class. Refer to the Code below


This code gave the following output
13 April 2005 16:53:46 GMT+05:30 //Locale was UK
April 13, 2005 4:54:56 PM GMT+05:30 //Locale was US
13 aprile 2005 16.56.29 GMT+05:30 //Locale was ITALY
13 avril 2005 16:59:55 GMT+05:30 //Locale was FRENCH

Hope this helps.

Thanks Abhinay,
my question was "how display date and time to the user in his timezone and locale."

and i got the answer for locale but not for timezone.

for e.g.

my web server is in india. right now time is 17:00.
if some one from UK visit my site he should not get 17:00 in his browser but he should get (17 - 4.30) i.e 12:30

please help
