Sorry I have posted wrongly in SCEA Section

My database and app. servers are running in US. I need to display a time column in the JSP, both EST and IST time.

My trying to convert the EST time to IST like below
String startDateString = "12/23/2005 11:20:00"; (EST)
java.util.Date olddate = new java.util.Date(startDateString);

java.text.SimpleDateFormat simple_date = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss");

java.util.Date newdate = new java.util.Date(simple_date.format(olddate));

java.text.DateFormat hrmins = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm");
String finalTime = hrmins.format(newdate);"Here in Home Meeting Time IST --> "+finalTime);

The result is - 11:20 (IST)

But for me it�s always displaying the same time for both EST and IST.

Is there anything wrong in the above code snippet? If so, please correct me.

Thanks and Regards,

Ranch Hand

It's probably my job that's being offshored here, but anyway...

Avoid the deprecated constructor Date(String): use DateFormat's parse instead:
