Hi All,
I'm retrieving the systime using the Date class and offsetting it to SGT using SinpleTimeZone. The code works fine in Java 1.1.7 environment but fails on the Java 1.1.3 environ.
SimpleTimeZone stz = new SimpleTimeZone(+8*60*60*1000,"Asia/Singapore");
SimpleTimeZone.setDefault(stz);
formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("ddMMMyyyy hh:mm:ss a");
Date date = new Date();
StringBuffer timeStampBuff = new StringBuffer();
System.out.println(formatter.format(date).toString());
Is this a known bug or something which I have missed out.
Thanks in advance,
Mahesh

Are you SERIOUSLY trying to use the 1.1.3 jdk? Or did you mean the 1.3.1 jdk?

HI,
We are currently coding an application using timezone
and I have some problem with the time zone return by java.util.Date
On Solarix 2.5.1, if I do a

import java.util.Date;
class tt
{
public static void main(String args[])
throws java.text.ParseException
{
Date d;
d = new Date();
double tz;
tz = d.getTimezoneOffset();
System.out.println(tz+" mins");
System.out.println((tz/60.0)+" hours\n");
System.out.println(d.toString());
System.out.println(d.toGMTString());
}
}
