hi,

calendar.set(year , month , day , hour , minute , second);
TimeZone timeZone = null;

if ((timezone != null) && (!(timezone.toString().equals(""))))
{
timeZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(timezone);

if (!timezone.equalsIgnoreCase(timeZone.getID()))
{
String msg = MPWAUtils.getLogMessage(
"error.general.invalid_time");
log.error(msg);
throw new InvalidParameterException(
MPWAConstants.ERRMSG_INVALID_TIME , msg);
}

log.debug("time zone " + timeZone);
calendar.setTimeZone(timeZone);
log.debug("time zone after set in Calendar " + timeZone);
//Generate TimeStamp from Calendar
timeStamp = new Timestamp(calendar.getTime().getTime());




i use above code to check any entered time zone is valid.

i need to check its validity and throw an exception if it is wrong timeZone.

but i dont want the time zone to be converted to default one.

and i need to get all available time zones in the world.

currently TimeZOne.getAvailableZones() will not get all of them\

help me

thanks maoj.

Where are you getting your TimeZone object? There is no class in the JDK called TimeZone with a getAvailableZones() method.
