In the code, I am trying to query oracle databse based on date. This date is stored in EST or EDT in Oracle table.
In order to query the DB, I need to convert the incoming date on the request from GMT to EST or EDT format. How can one decide to use what format? (EST or EDT). How can this be achieved in java program.
