I am writing a java aplication that has to convert standard time to GMT using time zone. I am not sure how to go about this, so some general advice would be helpfull. Thank you.

I thought standard time was GMT...
Assuming that the time you're trying to convert has a timezone in it, and you are currently in the GMT timezone, then you could use the java.text.SimpleDateFormat object.

Or something like that

I have no java certifications. This makes me a bad programmer. Ignore my post.
