I have a calendar with GMT date.
I need to get the Pacific(-8) time equivalent for the HOURS field.
How can I do that ?

Look into javadocs for
class. Your code might look something like this:
TimeZone tz = TimeZone.getTimeZone("EST"); TimeZone.setDefault(tz); Calendar rightNow = Calendar.getInstance(); int hour = rightNow.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY); int min = rightNow.get(Calendar.MINUTE); int day = rightNow.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
I agree. Here's the link:
