Hi All, I am trying to create a calendar object that will be set to Bermuda's current time. The questions I have are: 1. Which timezone ID to use for Bermuda? 2. Does this timezone automatically account for Daylight Savings Time? Thanks in advance, -MLA

Bermuda is in the Atlantic Timezone. ADT (Atlantic Daylight time) should take Daylight Savings into account.

One interesting thing to note is that Java has "deprecated" the use of 3-letter time zone codes, due to the ambiguity of some of them (their example is "CST" could mean "Central Standard Time" or "China Standard Time". You can read about this here: TimeZone Of course, in this case "ADT" is probably not ambiguous. Anyway, the "long" form of the Bermuda time zone code is "Atlantic/Bermuda" which is UTC-4:00 and supports standard and daylight savings. You might find it useful to list all the time zones available using TimeZone.getAvailableIDs. Tim
