I am doing the following sequence of steps to get the time from a column in database.
Timestamp ts1 = rs.getTimeStamp(1);
Date myDate = new Date(ts1.getTime());
This returns me a time according to database locale, however i require the time accroding to the JVM's locale.
I guess there must be some conversion api's [is using calendar the solution?]

It's actually just returning you a Date object which doesn't have a locale. Take a look at
for outputting it using different locales.
You mentioned UTC times. Do you mean timezones rather than locales?
