The clocks just went forward in the U.K. to
daylight savings time, or British Summer Time
as it is known locally.
I note from Bug 4064735 that the GMT timezone
(which is the default I get when I installed
JDK 1.2b3, and JDK 115) no longer uses daylight
(i.e. TimeZone.getDefault().useDaylightTime() =
This means that when I try to get the time using
Calendar.getInstance() it is an hour out. The clock
on my NT task bar s correct.
THIS IS VERY SERIOUS.
1) Should I be using another timezone, if so
which one is the correct one for the U.K (I can't
find this in the javadoc
2) If there is a correct time zone for the U.K,
why did the install of the JDK not set this as
my default time zone.
I NOW HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO GET THE CORRECT LOCAL
Please help !
