Hi all,

This is my first Post, regarding time zone conversion.

my requirement : i am getting date in string format here date is : "01/16/2013 6:00 PM". i need to trigger one job at this time. here user is in US(timezone : America/Regina[GMT -06:00]) and server is in INDIa(Asia/Calcutta[GMT +5:30]).

user assuming that the job is trigger at 01/16/2013 6:00 PM of his local time, for that i have to convert the us time in to IST and stored in the server to trigger the job in server.

here user selected time is : "01/16/2013 6:00 PM"
difference bt timezones : 11:30 hr ( India is 11:00 hr ahead)
so user time in server(IST) is : "01/17/2013 5:30 AM"

how to achive this functionality with a simple method which takes date as string and two timezones one is server and another one is user timezone.

please help me.

Thanks in advance..: )
