Hello, i have a gregorian calendar, i apply a timezone, then i retrieve the date, but it's displayed in GMT timezone , what can i do for retrieving a date from a calendar with a specified timezone .
After, i have to use a jcalendar which display the time coresponding to the time zone of the server machine, what could i do to get a calendar displaying date/time coresponding to a server machine not the mine.

Code :
TimeZone tz = TimeZone.getTimeZone("America/Caracas");
System.out.println("TZ ID : "+tz.getID());
System.out.println("TZ display name : "+tz.getDisplayName());
GregorianCalendar c = new GregorianCalendar();
System.out.println("c TZ ID : "+c.getTimeZone().getID());
System.out.println("c TZ display name : "+c.getTimeZone().getDisplayName());
System.out.println("c time : "+c.getTime().toString());

Output :
TZ ID : America/Caracas
TZ display name : Heure du Venezuela
c TZ ID : America/Caracas
c TZ display name : Heure du Venezuela
c time : Sun May 31 13:16:08 GMT 2009

This is a repeat of the question you already posted in in your other thread. Please stick to one thread, and if you feel the need to crosspost, at least let others know you are doing so, so as to avoid repeat answers.
