Setting time zone of a java.util.Date

0 votes

Can someone help me in specifying the time zone of a date object that I have parsed from a String?
The timezone is not specified in the String but by default, it is setting the local time zone as the time zone of the date object.
 Please suggest.

You can make use of the following DateFormat.

SimpleDateFormat myDate = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss");
myDate.setTimeZone(TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"));
Date newDate = myDate.parse("2010-05-23T09:01:02");

You need to do this because by default java.util.Date objects do not contain any timezone information.
