Hi All,

Can you guys help me to resolve the issue.


in Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY i am getting 1 hour less than the actual hour.

here is my code.
Calendar grgCal = new GregorianCalendar(TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT"));
Date currentDate = new Date();
grgCal.setTimeInMillis(currentDate.getTime());


calendar.set(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, grgCal.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY));

int hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);

Please help me to figure out the issue.ASAP

Thanks,
tvnrrk.

Have you allowed for summer time? It is 12.26 here, but GMT is only 11.26.

Setting the current time on the calendar is not necessary, because it's already set to the current time by default. Also, I wouldn't explicitly create a GregorianCalendar, but use Calendar.getInstance(); instead:

And this:

This line does nothing at all - it sets the hours of the calendar to the value that it's already set to. What was your intention with this?
