Hi All,

I have a Date stored in GMT format in database. Now I need to display this date to user depending on his/her LOCALE. I found SimpleDateFormat and few other classes to convert the Date Format, but I am not able to find how to change the Date value as per user locale.

Example:
Date in database : 19 August 2004 6:30 PM

Date for User from India should be : 19 August 2004 1:00 PM

How to achieve this .???

TIA,
Viral

Take a look at the getInstance() methods in the Calendar class or the constructors of GregorianCalendar. I'm pretty sure you'll find what you want there.
