Not sure if my question qualifies as intermediate but here goes -

I want to get a time zone that will return CET or CEST. When I do the code below today I get CET but it should have given me CEST. What is up?

TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Paris")

I want a time zone that knows if the time is CET or CEST

Thanks

In what way do you "get" CET from that code?

It is actully working. My unit test had a winter date in it. Either way I get a calander instance; set the gmt timezone since that is timezone I am getting; do an offset with "Europe/Paris".

Thanks for your response
