Hello all,

I have a strange problem that I cannot figure out and need your help.

I save a date in the database without time (i.e. 00:00:00), when i read it i get back (796600800000) Date=Fri Mar 31 01:00:00 IST 1995

Where the hell did the 01:00:00 come from ???

HELP !!!

TIA

Dates have no time zone (or assume GMT), but date's toString method uses your
JVM's default TimeZone.
