Below programs illustrate the working of getRawOffset() Method of TimeZone:
Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate getRawOffset() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Pacific/Pago_Pago");
  
        // Knowing the rawOffset time
        System.out.println("The rawOffset time is: "
                           + offtime_zone.getRawOffset());
    }
}
Output:
The rawOffset time is: -39600000

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate getRawOffset() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Rome");
  
        // Knowing the rawOffset time
        System.out.println("The rawOffset time is: "
                           + offtime_zone.getRawOffset());
    }
}
Output:
The rawOffset time is: 3600000
