Hi Maulin,

If you look at the getTimeZone() method of the Calendar class clearly you can see there is a way to get a TimeZone from a given Calendar.

The trick is to get an appropriate calendar instance using the getInstance() method of Calendar, passing in a Locale.

Unfortunately that'll not help down to the city level. The above will only work for countries. SO why not try the likes of Joda Time as suggested here?

I hope this helps,

John
