Java: get the time of another time zone

public Date getLocalCurrentDate() {
TimeZone timeZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(„Greece“);
TimeZone defaultZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(„GMT“);
Date localDate = new Date();
Date yourDate = new Date();
yourDate.setTime(localDate.getTime() + timeZone.getRawOffset() – defaultZone.getRawOffset() – defaultZone.getDSTSavings());
return yourDate;

Java: timezone shift / Zeit in andere Zeitzone umrechnen

To calculate a time to another time zone, just

  1. get a timezone object for the new timezone
  2. register the timezone object to a formatter
  3. recalculate the time with the formatter to a string

code sample:

// formatter
DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.FULL, DateFormat.FULL);
// local date
Date now = new Date();
// instanciate timezone
TimeZone timezone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(„Japan“);
// register on formatter
// recalculate
System.out.println(„Japan time is:“+df.format(now));
