I would like to change from one timeone to GMT and vice versa. ANybody has any idea about this. When I use the offset for that timezone from GMT and the String to initialize the timezone and then parse the date, it still shows up as the local JVM timezone.
Can anyone throw some light on this?

Try using java.text.DateFormat and java.util.TimeZone. You can set the time zone in the DateFormat object and it will display the time in that zone.
I agree. Here's the link:
