SimpleTimeZone setRawOffset() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 03 Jan, 2019

The setRawOffset() method of SimpleTimeZone class is used to set the base time zone offset to GMT. The offset is added to UTC to get the local time.

Syntax:

public void setRawOffset(int offsetMillis)

Parameters: The function accepts a single parameter offsetMillis which specifies the given base time zone offset to GMT.

Return Value: The method has no return value.

Exception: The function does not throws any exception.

Program below demonstrates the above mentioned function:

Program 1:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.SimpleTimeZone.setRawOffset()
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create simple time zone object
        SimpleTimeZone obj
            = new SimpleTimeZone(500, "GMT");
  
        // printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Inittally RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
  
        // setting RawOffset on object obj
        obj.setRawOffset(6000000);
        System.out.println("RawOffset "
                           + "set to 6000000");
  
        // printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Current RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
    }
}
Output:
Inittally RawOffset is = 500
RawOffset set to 6000000
Current RawOffset is = 6000000

Program 2:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.SimpleTimeZone.setRawOffset()
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create simple time zone object
        SimpleTimeZone obj
            = new SimpleTimeZone(800, "GMT");
  
        // printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Inittally RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
  
        // setting RawOffset on object obj
        obj.setRawOffset(8000000);
        System.out.println("RawOffset "
                           + "set to 8000000");
  
        // printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Current RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
    }
}
Output:
Inittally RawOffset is = 800
RawOffset set to 8000000
Current RawOffset is = 8000000
