Dear All,

I want the local time of specific country using java. For example, if I pass the AU as the country code, I should be able to get the current time of the Australia. I have only country code or locale as input with me. Please suggest. Thanks

In some countries there are multiple time zones. Look at this map for example, you'll see that Australia is using five seven (!) different time zones. So what would you expect to get when you only have the country code of Australia as the input?
